Charleston Wrongful Termination Lawyer
When employers fire someone wrongfully, they expose themselves to lawsuits. In cases where employers breach employment agreements or fire an employee who refuses to break a law, rule or regulation, or when employers may refuse employees leaves of absences they are entitled to or commit unfair labor practices, Stewart Bell, PLLC investigates company records, interviews witnesses, and will expose the employer misconduct.
Working with economic impact analysts, our wrongful termination attorneys determine the financial impact of a wrongful termination on a client’s earning potential, lost wages, and tarnished reputation. When licensing or other professional certifications are involved, or when personnel records are incorrect, we demand employers to change their Human Resources records, as well as any reports sent to licensing or professional agencies that could negatively impact our client’s future employment.

Things You Can Do to Help Yourself Now
If you have been wrongfully terminated, you should retain a copy of the following documents if possible:
- Company policies
- Employee Handbook
- Personnel performance reviews
- Licensing designations and certifications
- Pertinent letters, emails, memos and any other papers pertaining to your case
Do I Have a Case?
Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired for an illegal reason (religion, race, sex, etc.) or for exercising their legal rights. Cases involving personality conflicts that lead to poor performance ratings and eventual dismissal are extremely hard to document and are almost never worth the time and money they require to try.
However, in cases where employees are fired for discriminatory reasons or exposing company malfeasance, misconduct, or workplace violations, the law provides channels for legal remedy.
Considering Future Consequences: Why It’s Important to Fight
If your job requires certification or licensing, how your company’s human resources department reports the reason for your dismissal could impact whether you retain your licenses or not. If you’ve been wrongfully terminated but your company claims you were let go for the non-performance of your job, not only could you lose your license but your ability to find another job in that industry could be negatively impacted.
At Stewart Bell, PLLC, our Charleston wrongful termination lawyers demand that your record be expunged or corrected and hold employers liable for future damages that occur as a result of their actions. Additionally, we take steps to prevent illegal retaliatory action on the part of employers.
