Handling Your Wrongful Termination Lawsuit
Although Minnesota is an at-will employment state, terminations must be within the confines of the law. Wrongful termination occurs in one of two situations:
- Your employer either fired you for an illegal reason
- Your employer did not have the legal right to terminate your employment at will
When this occurs, you may have a case for legal action against them.
Examples of wrongful termination include:
- If you and your employer signed a contract, and your firing constituted a violation of the contract's terms
- If policies in an employee manual limit the employer's ability to terminate employees
- If certain union agreements exist
- If you were fired because of your race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, public assistance, or age
- If your employer retaliated against you for exercising your right to take medical or family leave, bringing a harassment or discrimination claim, whistleblowing, or participating in other protected activities
- If you were terminated for participating in jury duty, complying with a subpoena, or complying with some other form of public policy
- If you experienced a hostile work environment
Writing an Appeal Letter for Wrongful Termination
In some cases, those who are wrongfully terminated decide to send a grievance letter to their employer as a request for reinstatement to their position. Before writing the letter, you should find out what rules the company has about filing grievances, such as a time limit. If they do, you should be careful to follow these standards to best ensure that you have the best chance of a positive outcome.
If you are a member of a union, you should contact your representative and follow his or her directions on the writing of the grievance letter. You should also make sure to have a knowledgeable attorney by your side throughout this process who can advise and assist you.
If you decide to send a letter, you should include all correspondence in a file of documents pertaining to your release. Other records that you should keep include:
- Performance reviews
- Documents on salary increases / demands
- Copies of memos, reviews, or policies
