Prestigious New York City Employee Rights Attorneys Protect Your Professional Reputation After a Wrongful Termination


Attorneys taking a stand against unlawful firings

Losing your job is never easy. It is even more challenging when you have done your job well and you are wrongfully terminated. Although most terminations are not wrongful, the ones that are generally come with significant monetary damages for the plaintiff that suffered. Our New York City employee rights attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC are here to help you through the aftermath of getting wrongfully terminated. Our goal is to quickly recover the compensation you deserve to make you whole and get you through your transition between employers.

What is a wrongful termination in New York

New York is an “at will” employment state. That means employers can basically terminate employees for any reason, as long as it is not an illegal one. Generally, you must either have an employment contract or be fired on a discriminatory premise in order to have an actionable lawsuit for wrongful termination. Employment contracts have a good faith clause that must be met to support a company terminating an employee. Our New York City wrongful termination attorneys put the pressure on your past employer to prove that the firing was in good faith. Firings based on a discriminatory purpose are often more challenging to prove because uncovering evidence admissible in court is more difficult to uncover.  

Common grounds for bringing a wrongful termination lawsuit in New York

Our NYC wrongful termination attorneys have more than 70 years of combined legal experience in taking on wrongful termination lawsuits. The damages you are entitled to depend on the circumstances surrounding your case and the severity of your employers misconduct. The most common grounds for wrongful termination lawsuits that our NYC employee rights attorneys file include:

  • Being discriminated against as a member of a protected class

  • Breaching an employment contract in bad faith

  • Retaliatory terminations for whistle-blowing about illegal behaviors by the company

  • Releasing employees to avoid paying benefits earned

  • Constructive firings from the creation of hostile work environments
