Federal Discrimination Claims
Almost all employers are well aware of the limitations placed on them by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other legislation regarding firing their employees. Yet somehow, disability or handicap discrimination is one of the most common forms of discrimination. If you have been wrongfully terminated as a result of membership in a protected class, you are not alone, and you have rights.
At Coane and Associates, PLLC, we have been helping discrimination victims who have lost their jobs since 1983. We can try to help defend your rights and try to help you obtain compensation for the losses you have suffered as a result of your employer's discrimination. Our Miami Beach wrongful termination claims lawyers will take the time to listen to your situation and help you find the best solution for your situation.
We handle federal discrimination and overtime claims under federal law. Generally, wrongful termination is not an actionable claim as such; it usually emerges as an essential aspect of a separate claim like:
- FMLA violations: Firing employees or filling their positions for exercising their federally mandated leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act is wrongful termination.
- Age, race, sex or religious discrimination: Firing an employee for membership in a protected class is discrimination and is an example of wrongful termination.
- Disability discrimination: Firing an employee due to limitations, or failing to make reasonable accommodations for those limitations so that it becomes impossible for an employee to work can be considered wrongful termination.
- Sexual harassment: Firing an employee for not agreeing to sexual behavior is sexual harassment.
