In a lawsuit to recover for a violation of wage and hour laws, you may be entitled to recover your attorneys' fees.

The Firm's Wrongful Termination Practice

Although most employment relationships are "at will," which means that either party can terminate the relationship without cause, there are still situations where you may be entitled to compensation for a wrongful discharge or termination. The Lendrum Law Firm represents people who have been fired:

  • In breach of an employment contract. If you have a written employment contract, the terms of that contract determine the conditions under which you may be discharged.
  • In violation of state or federal law. The firm handles claims involving termination because of age, gender, race, religion, disability or other protected classes.
  • In retaliation for engaging in legally protected conduct. Attorney Lendrum fights for the rights of people who have been fired for reporting illegal conduct by an employer (whistleblower claim), or expressing concerns about the safety of fellow employees, or who were fired because they stood up for their rights to be paid what they are owed.

The firm has extensive experience in class action litigation and can represent a large group of employees who have been subject to the same wrongful act by an employer.
