Court awards FedEx worker who filed retaliation claim

It is not unusual for individuals to consider themselves career workers. They may intend to land a job and keep that job for as long as possible, which many hope means being able to retire from that job. Unfortunately, some individuals with this goal may not be able to reach it due to retaliation and unfair treatment they experience from their employers.

Wrongful termination claims filed after unnecessary layoffs

Being let go from a job can be a devastating experience. When the situation results with good reason and is out of the employee's control, an Oregon worker may be better able to accept the event. However, if workers are laid off only to find out that they were let go unnecessarily, they may have reason to file wrongful termination claims.

Employment law case stems from alleged disability discrimination

Having a disability, whether temporary or permanent, can make certain areas of life more difficult than for those who are able-bodied. However, having a disability does not mean that a person cannot carry out his or her necessary work duties and have a fulfilling career. In some cases, certain accommodations may be needed in order to have that success, and most employers have a legal obligation to provide reasonable accommodations. If that does not happen, employment law issues could result.

Former principal files lawsuit for wrongful termination

Being dismissed from a job is not often an easy or enjoyable experience for workers in Oregon or elsewhere. This type of scenario can become even more difficult when a person is unjustly fired as the result of retaliation. Wrongful termination is not uncommon, and workers do have legal rights when it comes to addressing this type of action.
