If you have been injured at work due to the negligence of your employer, been let go from your job unfairly, or been discriminated against in your job, you may be able to sue your employer. If you have had to leave your job for any reason, and not been given full pay or had money taken away from you, you should be able to sue your employer as long as you can prove that they have acted unfairly and are in breach of your rights. The best way to sue an employer is to know what you are doing and go through a lawyer, but here are some other things you can do to help the process along as well.
- Find a lawyer. A lawyer will know the law better than you do, and should be able to put together a case which has a much better chance of being successful. If you try to sue your employer on your own it is likely that you will be confused by certain legal issues, and this can lead to trouble and the loss of your case.
- Make a case against them. Take your time to build your case, keep everything you can for evidence, such as emails, letters and so on. Make sure that you have your contract and have gone through it thoroughly to point out areas where they are in violation of that contract.
- Speak to your employer. Before you take the step of pursuing legal action, go to your employer with the case you have built and tell them what you want and why. Your employer may be able to see that they are in the wrong in this situation, and be able to work out a solution with you that makes you both happy.
- Don’t lie. Throughout your case, if you lie to protect yourself and it is found out, you will automatically lose your case. Be completely honest about everything that has happened.
