Discharge Hearings

A Discharge Hearing is a hearing that results from an employee being wrongfully or unlawfully terminated.  An employee can be terminated for several reasons, but if the reason is not legally sound, it can result in a lawsuit.  Everyone has the right to ask why they have been terminated, but if there is not a legitimate reason for termination, then it is important to take responsibility for upholding your rights.  Speaking to a Minneapolis employment lawyer can help your situation.  You could be entitled to compensation, back pay, or a receiving your position back depending on the case.

How Do Discharge Hearings Work?

  •   If there was a legitimate reason for dismissal
  •   If the employee was made aware of the reason
  •   If the employee was offered an opportunity to correct or respond to the allegations made by the employer
  •  If the employer gave the employee an opportunity to discuss their termination
  •   If there were written or verbal warnings given to the employee for inadequate performance prior to termination
