Re: Good employment lawyer in N. KY / Cincy
There are many wrongful termination cases brought in at-will states. One of the often used grounds for bringing these cases is the following:
Not Following Own Termination Procedures - Often, the employee handbook or company policy outlines a procedure that must be followed before an employee is terminated. If the employer fires an employee without following this procedure, the employee may have a claim for wrongful termination.
Another angle is:
Defamation of Character
You might be able to sue for wrongful termination if your employer intentionally defamed you to justify terminating you.
For example, if your employer falsely accuses you of stealing as an excuse to fire you, you might have a case for wrongful termination in violation of public policy.
Definitely have him talk to a lawyer. Many times wrongful termination suits are settled out of court.
