Why Do You Need a Tempe Wrongful Termination Attorney?

A skilled Tempe executive-level wrongful termination attorney can use their resources to fully investigate the allegations in these cases. This can include working to obtain internal company memos, human resources documents, statements from supervisors and coworkers, and more.

An attorney will work with trusted economic and financial experts to fully calculate the total expected losses the executive has incurred. Using this information, an attorney will enter into negotiations with the employer in an effort to reach a fair settlement while also fully preparing to take the case to trial.

What Constitutes Wrongful Termination at the Executive Level

There are various reasons why executive-level wrongful termination claims arise in Arizona. This includes the following:

  • Fired in breach of an existing contract. An employee in Arizona cannot be fired outside of specified contractual agreements without good cause (this includes written, oral, or implied contracts).
  • Fired to avoid paying agreed-upon bonuses. An employer cannot terminate an employee right before a significant bonus should be paid to avoid paying that bonus.
  • Fraudulent inducement of employment. Employers cannot make false statements to prospective or current employees in an effort to urge them to take a job or continue working when that employee would not otherwise have taken or kept the job.
  • Fired based on a protected characteristic. Employers are prohibited from firing an employee based on race, color, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, genetic information, age (if 40 or over), citizenship status, religion, pregnancy status, sex, disability, medical condition, military or veteran status, political activities or affiliations, and more.
  • Fired due to non-compete agreements. Non-compete agreements are very hard to enforce. Any termination due to a non-complete issue needs to be fully investigated.
