JacksonWhite wants you to know that you are not alone, and that our skilled team of attorneys can help you fight for what you deserve.
Mesa Wrongful Termination
Arizona is considered an “at-will” state, which means that employers can hire or fire individuals when they choose and for any reason. However, just because Arizona is an “at-will” state doesn’t mean that there aren’t still some cases that a termination is considered illegal.
Mesa employers cannot fire you because of immutable characteristics that you’re unable to change. Doing so violates Arizona state laws, and possibly even national policy on employment. In addition, if there is a written employment contract, any violation of the contract could be grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Mesa Workplace Discrimination
Discrimination takes many forms, not all of which involve an employee being fired. Instead it can lead to a hostile work environment, loss of opportunity, pay discrepancies, and other illegal business practices.
The first steps of an employee confronting discrimination in the workplace are the most difficult, because the employee usually has to do it on their own. If they are lucky, it will stop. However, this is not always the case, and if the discrimination continues it can become out of control quickly.
The good news is that you do not have to fight this discrimination on your own. If you believe you are being discriminated against at work because of your sex, religion, race, pregnancy, disability, or any other situation that is out of your control, our lawyers will help you put a stop to the behavior immediately.

Mesa Workers Compensation Claims
Workers compensation was designed to protect both employees and employers, but sometimes, it can do more harm than good. Employees can feel entitled to workers compensation for incidents or illnesses that don’t always apply.
The best way to avoid workers compensation claims is to have clear policies and procedures in place, and have time set aside with each employee to go over these polices to make sure they understand the process. However, even if the right precautions are set in place, claims can still occur.
