Facing job loss, I can help you assess your legal rights and remedies, from negotiating severance agreements to pursuing claims for wrongful termination, unpaid wages, bonuses or other benefits, unlawful discrimination, and challenging unfair non-compete restrictions. Before you sign an exit interview release, call me.
Employees often call a lawyer too late – after they been fired, a probationary performance improvement period has lapsed, or have accepted a new job with a competing employer despite non-competition restrictions. Many are aware long before termination that their relationship with their supervisor is poor or eroding. Perhaps your supervisor expresses resentment at your exercise of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rights, or has imposed a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) because your performance has been called into question. As soon as you sense that your employment is at risk you should consult a lawyer to assess your rights.
