The loss of a job can have considerable impacts on an individual's life. Those effects can be even more difficult when a dismissal comes about as a form of retaliation. Though unnecessary punishment toward a whistleblower is illegal, some employers may still carry out such action. Luckily, individuals who have faced wrongful termination may have legal options.
Colorado residents may be interested in one woman's case involving such circumstances. Reports stated that the woman had worked for a mutual fund company and had concerns regarding the company's customer security measures. She apparently voiced her concerns in a public news article, and after the article was published, she was fired from her job. It was also noted that the woman was on family medical leave at the time of her termination.
Though the woman has apparently tried to find other work, she has been unsuccessful. She believes that the company filed false information that has resulted in her being unable to find employment in her chosen field. As a result, the woman has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the company in order to seek compensation for damages resulting from the situation.
Knowing that there are options for addressing such retaliation may help individuals feel some relief regarding an unfortunate predicament. Colorado residents who have faced wrongful termination may wish to learn more about the legal options open to them. Experienced attorneys are available for interested individuals who may wish to look into how they could seek justice for such wrongdoing.
