Human Resource departments serve a singular purpose – protecting a company from its most valuable asset. But who protects the employee?”
We spend more than half our lives working. We rely on our employment to meet our fundamental needs. Losing a job can be stressful. Having a job in a hostile environment can be equally agonizing. At Joshua Graham & Associates, we represent wrongfully terminated employees, employees subjected to a hostile work environment, or retaliated against for doing the right thing.
Losing your job can be one of the most stressful events in your life – especially when you did nothing wrong. We work with you to build a rock-solid case. You might not get your job back, but in some cases, you won’t need that job.
We stand up to big corporations, municipalities, and other organizations that abuse their power. With the law and the facts on your side, we don’t back down. When you don’t know who to call, we answer.
At-Will Employment is a MYTH
“Your employment with our company may be terminated for any or no reason.” How many times have you heard this? It is a lie. There are more than two dozen exceptions to this widely-accepted myth. The fact is that your employer may terminate your employment for any legal reason. Our job is to listen to those reasons and then determine if they legitimately fall under at-will employment. Companies make mistakes. Sometimes companies do the right thing after we open a discussion with them. Often litigation is necessary. We have the experience to both persuade and bring lawsuits against employers who refuse to do the right thing.
There are legitimate reasons to fire an employee – how you do it matters.
There are legitimate reasons to fire an employee. Good termination processes are important. If you are an employer wanting to protect yourself from costly mistakes, our attorney consultants are more than happy to help. We will show you how to create processes that ensure your compliance. And then we will show you how to protect the process.
