Employment Lawsuit Funding
Employment lawsuit funding provides advances on cases involving violations of state or federal employment laws.The types of cases that are covered are listed below.
- age discrimination
- racial discrimination
- sexual discrimination
- sexual harassment (e.g. unwelcome sexual advances by same or opposite sex, requests for sexual favors by same or opposite sex, sexually explicit material that does not belong in the work environment, sexual comments that should not occur in the work environment)
- sexual abuse (e.g. improper touching, rape)
- wrongful termination
It should noted that most employment is “at will”. This means that in the absence of a contract, either the employee or employer can terminate employment for almost any reason. The exception is that employment termination must follow the laws at the time. Therefore, wrongful termination must demonstrate that an employment law was violated in doing the terminiation of employment.
The violations may be have been committed by co-workers and/or managers and supervisors. The violations can include inaction on the part of your employer if the employer does not take steps to correct the problem after the problem has been reported to management.
