Wrongful Termination Archives

In a prior post, we warned our readers of the dangers of social media rants, particularly after being terminated. We also wrote on how a union member was wrongfully fired after an expletive laced post circulated among his fellow employees and up to management.

Things to avoid after being fired

Even before the phrase “you’re fired” became a household catchphrase through “The Apprentice” millions of workers would face the unfortunate reality that their employment would be terminated. Let’s face it, being fired is no fun; regardless of whether you love or hate your job (or your boss).
