Your job is your livelihood, and losing it for any reason can be devastating. Unfortunately, many workers in the U.S. and throughout Indiana lose their jobs for reasons that violate Federal law. The U.S. government has several acts and laws protecting workers from being laid off, fired, or demoted for their race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability status, sexual orientation, and more.
At Stewart & Stewart, it’s our job to help workers who were dismissed from their jobs for reasons that violate Federal law. In our years of experience assisting hardworking people like you, we’ve learned that many victims don’t always know what to expect when they pursue claims against their former employers.
Our team of Indiana wrongful termination lawyers works hard and confidentially to help victims recover compensation for:
- Lost wages – Workers may be eligible to recover all of the wages they lost from the date of wrongful termination until the present. Future lost wages also may be included, especially if the worker has been unable to obtain employment by the time the settlement offer occurs.
- Lost benefits – Working full time often has benefits that go beyond salaries, including health insurance coverage and stock options. Wrongful termination settlements can and often do include those lost benefits for fired workers.
- Emotional distress – Losing a job and a reliable income can be devastating, especially when it’s due to something you had no control over. Workers may be eligible to receive additional compensation for the distress, anxiety, and anguish they feel over the loss of their job.
Pursuing compensation from your former employer may feel intimidating, but if you were wrongfully terminated, we’re here to help. Call us today for a free consultation.
