Steps to take after a wrongful termination

Employees in Maryland may not realize that wrongful termination from a job can take many forms. For example, an employer might offer a severance package and tell an employee that they have to resign. However, the employee may want to consider this offer more carefully because doing so may make it impossible to file a wrongful termination suit.

Maryland employees have a right to fair treatment

The discrimination or unfair treatment of employees is an unfortunate and real part of some workplace settings. For police officer Carissa Lewis, working while pregnant afforded her the unfair treatment from her superiors at the Morningside Police Department. Despite a doctor's order indicating a need for Lewis to perform light duty work, the officer was repeatedly asked to perform normal duty activities. Her requests for an appropriate location for pumping breast milk went unanswered. In addition to failing to acknowledge the requests for accommodating a healthy pregnancy, the chief of police was accused of showing the pregnant officer inappropriate material involving women that he obtained from the Internet.
