Wrongful or Retaliatory Termination Louisville
Most employees in the State of Kentucky are “at will” employees. An ‘at will’ employee works for a business with the understanding that the employer can fire the employee for no reason at all; as long as the firing does not violate the law or public policy. Similarly, an employee can quit his or her job at any time and not give his or her employer any notice.
Retaliation by an employer is not allowed. If an employer fires an employee as a result of the employee filing a FLSA case or for writing a complaint to a supervisor or such, then that employer cannot fire the employee on that basis alone. Of course an employer is not going to say that the employee was fired in a retaliatory manner, rather the employer will come up with some sort of pre-textual (ie. bogus) reason for the firing. If you feel that you have been fired and the employer is using a false or bogus reason and the real reason is that the employer is retaliating against you, then you may have a retaliatory termination case and you should speak to a lawyer at the Law Offices of Andrew Alitowski, P.A..
Usually when you sue for retaliatory termination the employee is entitled to back wages, fines or even punitive damages.
