What Does a Wrongful Termination Lawyer Do?

At Friedland & Associates, a wrongful termination lawyer helps employees who believe they were unjustly fired from their jobs. Employment laws can vary from state to state, including Florida and New York.

Here’s how a wrongful termination lawyer on our legal team typically handles cases:

Free Consultation

The process begins with an initial consultation where a wrongful termination lawyer on our legal team will listen to your account of the circumstances leading to your termination. They will evaluate the facts, gather information, and assess whether your case has legal merit based on state-specific laws and regulations.

Explanation of Rights

Florida follows the “at-will” employment doctrine, which means that employers can terminate employees without cause or notice. However, exceptions exist, such as terminations due to discrimination, retaliation, breach of contract, or violations of public policy. A wrongful termination lawyer will assess whether your situation falls under these exceptions.

New York:
New York is an “at-will” employment state as well, but like Florida, it also has exceptions to protect employees. These exceptions include anti-discrimination laws, whistleblower protections, and public policy considerations. A New York wrongful termination attorney on our legal team will determine if your case aligns with these exceptions.
Gathering Evidence
Your lawyer will work with you to gather relevant evidence that supports your claim of wrongful termination.

This may include:

  • Employment contracts
  • Communication records
  • Performance evaluations
  • Witness statements
  • Any documentation showing a potential violation of employment laws

Documenting the Timeline

The attorney creates a detailed timeline of events leading up to your termination, which can help establish a clear sequence of actions and decisions.

Reviewing Company Policies

The attorney assesses whether the employer followed its own policies and procedures during the termination process, as deviations from established protocols can indicate potential wrongdoing.

Evaluating Employee’s Performance History

The attorney examines your performance history, evaluations, and feedback to determine if there is evidence of a legitimate reason for termination.

Identifying Discrimination or Retaliation

If you believe the termination was due to discrimination or retaliation, your attorney investigates whether there is a pattern of such behavior within the company.

Legal Research

Your lawyer will conduct legal research to determine whether the termination violated any federal or state employment laws, such as anti-discrimination laws, whistleblower protections, or breach of contract laws.

Consulting Expert Witnesses

In some cases, attorneys may consult with expert witnesses, such as HR professionals or industry experts, to assess whether the termination was consistent with standard practices in the field.

Calculating Damages

If you are seeking compensation for damages resulting from the wrongful termination, your attorney assesses the financial impact, including lost wages, benefits, and emotional distress.

Negotiation and Settlement

In many cases, a wrongful termination lawyer will attempt to negotiate with your former employer or their legal representatives before filing a lawsuit. They will work to secure a fair settlement that compensates you for lost wages, emotional distress, and any other damages resulting from your wrongful termination.

Filing a Lawsuit

If negotiations fail to reach a fair resolution, your lawyer may proceed with filing a lawsuit against your former employer. They will handle all legal proceedings, such as drafting legal documents, complying with deadlines, and representing you in court.


During the litigation process, your lawyer will present evidence, cross-examine witnesses, and argue your case before a judge and jury. They will use their legal expertise to build a compelling case and advocate for your rights.

Resolving the Case

The case may be resolved through settlement negotiations, alternative dispute resolution methods, or a trial verdict. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you, whether through a negotiated settlement or a favorable court decision.

What Other Types of Employment-Related Matters Does An Attorney Handle?

In addition to wrongful termination, these lawyers can also handle various employment-related matters, including:

Discrimination cases

Representing employees who faced discrimination based on race, gender, age, religion, or other protected characteristics.

Retaliation claims

Assisting employees who were fired in retaliation for whistleblowing or asserting their rights.

Employment contracts

Advising employees on employment agreements, non-compete clauses, and severance packages.

Workplace harassment

Representing victims of workplace harassment and helping them seek remedies.

Employment law compliance

Guiding employers and employees on labor laws, regulations, and policies.
