Wrongful Termination Archives

Pursuit of justice continues in retaliation lawsuit

Abbott Laboratories makes generic pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more. The Chicago-based company has found itself in court recently, facing allegations from a former employee who says the medication-maker fired her after she complained about the firm's promotion practices.

Federal wrongful termination lawsuit settled for $248,000

A lawsuit regarding the unfair firing of a prosecutor was settled in October of this year. The prosecuting attorney alleged misconduct on the part of the district attorney and filed suit in 2013. Finally, after four years, the wrongful termination matter has been settled. Individuals in Wisconsin who are facing similar problems with reporting misconduct may take some encouragement from the recent news story. 

Doctor brings wrongful termination suit to Wisconsin hospital

A recent lawsuit may give a peek into the inner workings of a local hospital. One doctor alleges that he was a victim of wrongful termination when he spoke up about his employer's failure to meet standards for organ transplants. The Wisconsin hospital is currently on probation, and the lawsuit is still pending. 

Wisconsin gravedigger sues for wrongful termination

A person who reports the wrongdoing of others on the job should be protected from retaliation. The law supports this notion, and protections exist for whistleblowers. In Wisconsin, one man was fired from his job, he says, after reporting the improper conduct of his fellow employees. He has brought a lawsuit for wrongful termination against the deathcare company. 

Managing wrongful termination claims in the workplace

Employees are protected from unfair firing by various federal and state laws. In the event that an employer decides to fire a worker, the company should be able to demonstrate that the firing was not a result of discrimination. If not, the business could potentially face a wrongful termination lawsuit. Individuals in Wisconsin on both sides of the issue may be interested to know what actions show a proper dismissal and what actions may suggest that a person is being released because of bias.
