Wrongful Termination or Discharge | Violation of Employment Contract, Law or Public Policy

That means that either party to an employment relationship can end it at any time, and for any reason, provided it’s not contrary to the provisions of an employment contract, or in violation of law or public policy. If you have lost your job, and you believe your employer’s actions were illegal, improper or in breach of contract, Buchanan Law can help.

Our Representation in Wrongful Discharge or Termination Cases

We will aggressively advocate for you throughout the legal process, carefully investigating your claims and gathering, evaluating and preserving all relevant evidence. We’ll review the terms of any employment contract, and will consider whether your employer’s conduct constituted violation of law or public policy:

  • Discrimination in violation of the New Mexico Human Rights Act or various federal anti-discrimination statutes, such as the ADEA, the ADA and the Civil Rights Act
  • Retaliation for exercising your legal rights, including filing a valid workers’ compensation claim, reporting wrongful conduct by your employer or testifying in a proceeding involving your employer
  • Wrongful discharge for refusing to condone or participate in illegal or unethical behavior

We’ll help you pursue damages for all your losses, including lost income and wages, as well as lost benefits.
