Being wrongfully fired in Texas can do damage to one's self-esteem and even job opportunities. One man in another state said he was unlawfully terminated by his employer, Little Caesars Pizza. As a result, he decided to file a wrongful termination lawsuit against the restaurant.
The man said he had worked for the establishment since December of 2013. He went on a medical leave for one week beginning in June after undergoing oral surgery. However, after he went back to work, his hours were reportedly trimmed. He said he was later removed from the company's work schedule and then terminated.
The man claimed that the pizza chain managers acted in a negligent and reckless manner, which led to his illegal firing. As part of his lawsuit, he is seeking compensation for the loss of wages. The man is also pursuing damages for emotional distress as well as attorney fees and any other relief determined to be appropriate by the civil court.
Companies that decide to fire workers for no legitimate reasons may be held accountable for their actions through the court system. This is because employees who experience alleged wrongful termination have the right to pursue claims against their employers, seeking damages. Various reparations may result from a case that is navigated successfully in Texas, such as the reinstatement of a job or back pay depending on the circumstances surrounding the case. Every case is different; legal counsel might be able to provide illegal termination victims with extra options as well as estimations of the outcomes of specific cases.
