Denver Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Work with Us When You’ve Been Wrongfully Let Go
Colorado’s employees are protected from wrongful dismissal or retaliatory discharge under both state and federal law. Even with these protections in place, however, workers can be taken advantage of, particularly when they report unlawful or harassing behavior.
Wrongful termination cases are nuanced, and the laws are complex. You may be confused as to whether your termination was wrongful or if your employer’s actions were against the law. At Colorado Employee Advocates, we are ready to listen to your side of the story and can advise you on your rights and legal options under the law. Our Denver wrongful termination attorneys are passionate about ensuring you are treated fairly, and your situation is not allowed to happen to others.
What Is Wrongful Termination?
Colorado classifies most employees as “at-will,” which means employers can terminate their employment at any time and without reason. At-will status makes proving wrongful termination difficult, but with the help of our dedicated attorney, you can rest easier knowing you have a knowledgeable guide on your side.
Wrongful termination claims can be brought against a company for several reasons, including:
- Discrimination based on a protected class
- Wage and hour disputes
- Retaliation, such as in a whistleblower case
- Breach of contract
- After a workplace injury
- Sexual harassment or “quid pro quo” situations
- FMLA, jury duty, military, or voting leave
- Refusal to provide a safe work environment
Filing a Claim for Wrongful Termination
Claimants must file a complaint with the Colorado Human Rights Commission, located in Denver, who will record the complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC is the federal commission put in place to investigate workplace discrimination claims. They can bring a lawsuit against your employer in civil court.
At Colorado Employee Advocates, our Denver wrongful termination attorneys are ready to help back you up during this process. We can listen to your story, stand by your side, and uphold your rights throughout the duration of your lawsuit. We will do whatever we can to ensure you receive compensation for your unfair treatment and the justice you deserve.
