Arizona Wrongful Termination Lawyers
While employment in Arizona is in general an "at-will" arrangement, many employees are victims of wrongful termination for reporting violations of the law by their employer that may protect them from adverse actions taken by their employer. At Martin & Bonnett PLLC, we will discuss what rights you may have even as an "at-will" employee and what remedies you may be entitled to receive if those rights are violated by your employer.
Employers Demanding Blind Loyalty
Employers expect loyalty from their employees. Companies who are engaging in illegal activities may expect their staff to look the other way. Illegal corporate conduct, such as, dumping toxic chemicals or overcharging a government agency, represent violations of the law. An employee speaking on such matters is generally protected from retaliatory actions by their employer.
The Rights of a “Whistleblower”
At Martin & Bonnett PLLC, we have represented employees who were fired for reporting their employer’s misconduct to OSHA, other government agencies or legal authorities. An employee who is a “whistleblower” is simply asserting his or her rights. They see a crime committed and feel it is their obligation to report it. An employee’s reward should be praise, not loss of a job. Employers only compound their violations of the law by wrongfully terminating a staff member for doing the right thing.
Establishing Your Wrongful Termination Case
We will meet with you and discuss the events that led up to your termination. Your case will receive a thorough review and analysis. While we also strive to resolve employment disputes through negotiation, we will not hesitate to litigate your wrongful termination claims in court.
