While Wrongful Termination is typically part of employment litigation, it’s worth calling out. Understanding what you’re getting yourself into with a termination or layoffs can help you avoid challenges down the road. At Layton Law Firm, we always recommend a consultation before enacting a termination. By consulting with us before terminating an employee, it’s possible to examine the likelihood that this individual would file a claim. Are there red flags? Is this employee 40 or older, is there a disability, or have worker's compensation claims been filed? The goal here is to reduce risk. As always, we are staunch advocates for preventive measures that save time, money and angst.
