A termination of employment can occur in the event of a breach of contract or misconduct by either of the party. In a wrongful termination situation, the terminated employer may take an action against the employer and may recover lost benefits, lost wages or potential emotional distress damages.
Workers’ Compensation is provided to employees that were injured in the course of employment. It is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits in exchange that the employee does not sue the employer. Having a legal representative would make a difference in ensuring a fair settlement.
