Wrongfully Terminated from Your Job? You May Have a Claim.

Nov 1, 2017 | Wrongful Termination


Although employers in Indiana may terminate or lay off employees in a variety of circumstances, federal law protects workers from being laid off for certain reasons. Those four federal laws/acts include:

  • Civil Rights Act of 1964: This law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees due to their race, skin color, religion, sex, or national origin.
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967: This law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees 40 years of age and older.
  • Civil Service Reform Act of 1978: This law expands on the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and makes it illegal for employers to discriminate based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, marital status, political affiliation, or sexual orientation.
  • Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990: This law prohibits employers from discriminating against workers or qualified individuals who have disabilities.

If you were fired, laid off, forced to retire, or forced to resign for any reason, there’s a chance that your employer violated federal law. If so, you may be eligible to file a wrongful termination claim.

At Stewart & Stewart Attorneys, we know the ins-and-outs of wrongful termination claims, and we can determine if employers’ actions were illegal. Call our Indiana wrongful termination lawyers today for a free consultation.
