When it comes to employment, there is an array of legal complications which may arise premised around the work place or the work environment. What are some of the most common employment law related issues that pop up in The Copper State?
- Wrongful termination
- Workplace discrimination
- Wage and hour claims
- Disability benefits and pensions
With the current climate the way it is and the market being unstable and employment rates just not seeming to come down – well not until taxes are lowered at least depending on how things are going, it is not easy for one to secure a job (some parts of the country are worse than others). It can be time consuming, expensive, and highly exhaustive in other means too.
Once secured, it would be a shame to lose your job due to wrongful termination. Of course, not all terminations are wrongful terminations. A majority of them are reasonable and have appropriate cause behind them. Arizona happens to be an at will state in terms of its employment category and philosophy. What this effectively means is that employers can terminate the contracts of their employees for good cause or no cause, but not for bad cause.
So what does bad cause even mean? Bad cause includes but is not limited to things such as whistle blowing, discrimination, retaliation for whistle blowing or refusing to violate the law, refusal to breach contract (retaliation), for speaking up against sexual harassment, and so on.
Furthermore, in Arizona, in the case of government employees, they have more privileges such as the ability to appeal their firing, and they can only be terminated for cause after having served a probationary term.

…..is text book discrimination. If you happen to be someone who has been on the receiving end of such discrimination or you if you know someone who has gone through or is going through such discrimination, our employment law counselors can certainly help. They know this department!
