Bryan Singer fired amidst disputed absence from movie set

It’s not often that Hollywood directors encounter employment issues. After all, we tend to hear about them when they sign on to helm multi-million dollar films or are nominated for Oscar awards.

Terminated airline employee receives $1.3 million jury award

How whistleblowers can be protected under state and federal law

We have not addressed the topic of whistleblowers on our blog in quite some time. We acknowledge that being a whistleblower is a tremendously courageous act, because it involves risking one’s livelihood and reputation to expose actions by their employers to defraud the federal government.

Could social media posts violate non-solicitation agreements?

Social media sites such as LinkedIn and Ladders have changed the landscape for salespeople and jobseekers alike. Salespeople can reach and develop a larger customer base with less effort, and job seekers can connect with decision-makers in unprecedented ways.

Why termination letters are important

It may go without saying, but being fired from a job can be a demoralizing experience. Most of us believe that we are capable of doing a good job for an employer despite personality conflicts or mistakes that may have been made. For some, being let go could be the start of a professional reboot. After all, what doesn’t kill you can make you stronger, as the old adage says.

When a resignation may not be voluntary

When we think about when an employee resigns from a job, we generally think that the employee (for whatever reason) no longer wants to be in the company’s employ, and that such a decision is voluntary.

Ways to heal after being let go from your job

It is universally known that being fired from a job can be disheartening. For some, it can be a huge blow to one’s confidence. To others, it can be akin to the death of a loved one. Sometimes the employer has a nondiscriminatory reason for ending employment; other times pretext is the reason behind such an action. Regardless, the next job for a fired employee may have nothing to do with working for someone else.
