Wrongful Termination Archives

Wrongful dismissal is at the heart of Colorado employee's case

Many of our Colorado readers are familiar with the concept of at-will employment. For those who aren't, the gist of the concept is that an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason - and the employee can do the same. However, there are many employees throughout Colorado and the nation who work under the terms of an employment contract. In order for those individuals to be fired, oftentimes their contract will specify that the termination needs to be for a valid reason.

Employment discrimination case results in $3.5 million jury award

Colorado parents put a lot of faith into school teachers. Teachers are the ones who are entrusted with the huge responsibility of steering school kids down the right path with their education and ensuring that every kid lives up to their potential. Being a teacher should easily be considered one of the hardest jobs in America, and most teachers are held in very high esteem by the school districts that employ them. That is why when a teacher gets fired it will usually raise a few eyebrows in the community.

Jury verdict upheld in employment discrimination-related case

Although there are numerous state and federal laws designed to prevent and punish employment discrimination, the sad fact is that the problem is still prevalent throughout the country. Despite the best efforts of corporate headquarters and the highest levels of government entities, employers still have to place a great deal of trust in lower-level management officials in the day-to-day tasks of running a business or agency. So, when an appellate court upholds a substantial jury award based on a wrongful termination lawsuit, many employers are likely to take notice.

Federal funds at issue in employment discrimination case

Wrongful termination lawsuits occur for a wide variety of reasons. They are hard cases for a plaintiff to pursue, because many employees work for their employers on an "at-will" basis - which means they can be fired for almost any reasons, or no reason. However, there are circumstances when no matter what the employment situation between the two parties is an employer can be found to have unjustifiably fired an employee. When a government employee alleges misuse of public funds and is terminated from employment as a result, it could be just that sort of employment discrimination.

Settlement reached in lawsuit against City of Colorado Springs

Some of our Colorado readers may have heard about recent developments in a lawsuit filed against the City of Colorado Springs.

These types of cases can oftentimes be difficult to successfully pursue, but in this case it appears that the former employee's case was solid enough to warrant a settlement offer.

Employment discrimination case brought against HBO, AHA

Any of our Colorado readers who are familiar with the short-lived HBO television series "Luck" are probably also familiar with the fact that the series had quite a few problems. Although the original goal of the series was probably to establish another strong, critically-acclaimed show in the vein of other HBO products like "True Blood" and "Boardwalk Empire," "Luck" just couldn't get around some problems with a key part of the cast - horses.

Tv star claims potential employment discrimination

Some of our Colorado readers may be familiar with the television show "Storage Wars." The popular A&E hit covers the ongoing efforts of a variety of operations to buy the contents of old storage units, usually by means of bidding at storage unit auctions. The show has been on the air for three seasons now, but it appears that the fourth season may have some controversy to address.

Has employment discrimination led to your wrongful termination?

In today's economic climate, most of our Colorado readers who have a job probably just feel fortunate enough to not be among the ranks of the unemployed. The joblessness rate in America continues to remain mostly stagnant, although recent months have shown some signs of modest improvement. However, there are still many Americans who face the prospect of being laid off - or even just flat-out fired - everyday. When employment does come to an end, Colorado residents should be sure that the loss of their job wasn't due to employment discrimination.
