Wrongful termination describes a situation in which an individual is fired from a business or company in such a way that the terms or contract of employment, an employment law or a statute provision has been broken.
New Jersey Appeals Court Disqualifies Firm from Representing Client in Wrongful Termination Case
Mr. Sanchez believes he was wrongfully terminated by his company, so hired representation to fight his case in court. According to Lexology, the individual was slapped with a disciplinary warning after multiple complaints were filed against him. Sanchez confronted the management and explained that he had confidential files from his employer that he would use against the company if needed. Two months later, he was fired. Under New Jersey’s Whistleblower law, Sanchez sued his former employer for wrongful termination. The lawyer who took on his case failed to acknowledge the burn files for nine months, and the employer filed a motion to prevent Sanchez from revealing any trade secrets or privileged information about the company in court. The smaller trial court granted the motion at which point Sanchez filed an appeal. After much deliberation, New Jersey’s appellate court decided there was enough evidence to suggest Sanchez took proprietary information from the company and his lawyers delayed providing the information for an unreasonable length of time.
