What to expect in your wrongful termination case

Are you looking for a lawyer to represent you in your wrongful termination lawsuit? If you were wrongfully terminated from your job -- and you're considering filing an employment law claim for damages -- you're probably wondering what to expect in your upcoming lawsuit.

Fortunately, when you retain a lawyer, he or she will educate you on the rules and regulations that apply to a wrongful termination suit. Let's take a look at some of the most basic aspects of such a claim here:

-- Warning that you're going to file: Your first step in a wrongful termination suit is to send formal notice that you plan to file a suit.

-- The possibility of early settlement: In some cases, a letter will be all that you require to settle your wrongful termination claims. If your ex-employer is willing to negotiate, you might be able to settle your claims out-of-court without submitting a lawsuit.

-- Filing a lawsuit: When your employer refuses to settle, it's time to move forward with your lawsuit. Your attorney will draft a legal document to file with the court, which begins your lawsuit. One of the best things about a court case is that you can have a jury decide your matter. A jury could be sympathetic to your situation, especially if your employer's actions against you were particularly unjust

-- You also might arbitrate your case: You may need to arbitrate your case depending on the employment contract you signed. Or, you may choose to arbitrate the matter because you prefer the speed and less-formal nature of arbitration.

Having a lawyer represent you in your employment lawsuit will help you immensely. Your employer will likely retain top-notch legal counsel to fight against your claims in court. This is not an area of the law that you want to venture into without experience and training. At Bononi Law Group, LLP, our lawyers are well-versed and experienced in every area of California and federal employment law.
