Fighting For Employees

For employees, an employer's unfair or unlawful employment practices can be emotionally and financially devastating. At The Rutten Law Firm, APC, we understand that facing discrimination, retaliation or harassment at work is challenging. When an employer wrongfully terminates an employee, he or she faces not only lost income, but also fear and anxiety over an uncertain future.

While some wrongfully terminated employees recover quickly and find new and even better jobs, others do not. To survive and support his or her family, an employee may be forced to accept a lower paying or otherwise inferior job. In other cases, a wrongful termination may lead to lengthy periods of unemployment and financial hardships. Wrongful termination, discrimination and retaliation cases sometimes permanently damage a person's career or family.
