Can You Sue Your Job for Unfair Treatment?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad behavior on the part of employers that can make the life of an employee quite miserable, but that cannot really be called illegal. Your boss may never give you the weekend off but instead may give it to someone he or she likes better. They may also give you the least desirable assignments. Can you sue for this? Probably not, but you can try to find a better job. However, there are some offenses that you can indeed sue for, and that's when you should call a Kansas City, Missouri employment attorney.
Discrimination and Whistleblower Treatment
Important federal laws make it illegal to discriminate against an employee on the basis of race, color, gender, disability or age. Even so, employers may sometimes try to do this. When this occurs, hiring an employment attorney can get you the justice you deserve. It is also illegal for an employer to retaliate against a whistleblower who reports some kind of unethical conduct, like a violation of environmental regulations or a fraudulent act.
Breach of Contract
Although most employees don't really have a contract for their employment, some do. The contract stipulates the terms of employment, including termination. If this kind of contract is breached and the employer tries to fire you for some reason not specified in your contract, you can sue and your case may have merit as a wrongful termination case. An experienced employment attorney can advise you as to how this would work.
