Downsizing, Layoffs, Reductions In The Workforce: You Need A Lawyer

You may have been offered some type of explanation for why you were losing your job. But, if there was no legitimate and legal reason to discharge you, your employer may be liable for damages. Many employers assume that a laid off worker will not seek legal help after he or she has lost his or her job. They are counting on the terminated employee to accept his or her fate and move on. You do not have to accept this fate.

Examples Of Some Typical Lay Off Scenarios

  • You may have suffered harassment or discrimination at work and your employer fears a lawsuit; to avoid the lawsuit, they let you go.
  • You may have witnessed something illegal at your workplace; your employer wants to cover it up and avoid a whistleblower scandal, so they lay you off.
  • You may be at your job nearly long enough to get stock options or other benefits; rather than honoring this, your employer claims the need for reductions in the workforce and your job is "eliminated."
  • You may have health issues that your employer does not want to insure; they may tell you they are "downsizing," but strangely, you are the only employee to lose your job.

The possibilities for how you may have been wronged by your employer are endless. We are prepared for all circumstances, including the most challenging ones. If you have been laid off, we will relentlessly fight to get you the compensation and justice that you deserve.
