Wrongful Discharge

Standing Up for Wrongfully Terminated Employees

Not all terminations are the result of a wrongful discharge. However, if you believe that you have been fired from your job or let go illegally, it is important to enlist the assistance of an experienced lawyer immediately to ensure your rights are protected.

At the Troy and Dearborn, Michigan, law offices of Akeel & Valentine PLC, we pride ourselves on the outstanding reputation we have earned for aggressively standing up for the rights of wronged employees. Representing clients in Detroit, Troy, Dearborn and throughout Michigan, our wrongful termination attorneys have extensive experience handling these and other types of employment law cases in state and federal courts. We do not believe in letting your employer have the upper hand. Our lawyers work hard on your behalf to level the playing field.

Employment in Michigan

Michigan is considered an at-will employment state. At-will means that an employer can dismiss an employee without any specific reason. However, if the dismissal is in retaliation or if there is a contract that details the terms of the employment, then there is an exception to the at-will employment and we may be able to take action on your behalf.

Exercising Your Rights

In many cases, a wrongful termination may have been leveled against an employee illegally. This means that the termination is in retaliation to an employee exercising his or her rights by reporting wrongdoing by another employee or the employer, as in situations of:

  • Discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Whistleblower
  • False Claims Act and Qui Tam issues

Wrongful termination should not be tolerated. Even though Michigan is an at-will employment state, the reason for your termination should be clear and legal.
