Taking Legal Action After Losing Your Job or Failure to Promote
Any job loss can be hurtful, stressful and frustrating, especially if you don't believe there was good reason for your termination. However, in an "at-will" employment state like Colorado, an employer has the right to fire you, unless it is firing you for an illegal reason such as discrimination or retaliation. At Robinson & Associates Law Office in Denver, we are dedicated to the investigation of wrongful termination cases and working toward a just resolution for our clients.
Knowing the Law and Knowing Your Rights
If you believe you are going to lose your job or you have already been terminated, it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Our Denver wrongful termination attorney represents professionals, executives, union workers, state employees and other individuals who have suffered wrongful termination based on discrimination, harassment or whistleblower complaints.
A wrongful termination claim may be viable if you believe you were fired for any of the following reasons:
- Discrimination based on race, sex, gender, religion, disability or age
- Reporting sexual harassment
- Filing a complaint, including one about illegal conduct (whistleblower complaints)
- Filing a workers' comp claim
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Violation of public policy
- Filing under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Representation for Executives, Professionals and Government Employees
In addition to termination claims based on misconduct or filing claims, we handle disputes on behalf of executives and professionals who have suffered a breach of an employment contract, including severance agreements. We also represent city and state government employees who have more rights than private employees. Our experienced lawyer, Jennifer C. Robinson, with the help of legal support personnel where appropriate, will handle every aspect of your case from investigation through hearings, filing administrative claims, negotiation and settlement, and trial, when necessary.
