Helping Clients Overcome Wrongful Terminations
Both federal and state laws are in place to protect employees' rights. These rights include the right to be free from erroneous employment decisions based on discriminatory or retaliatory reasons. Victims of an illegal termination may be entitled to back pay, reinstatement of their job status, and compensation for emotional suffering.
Federal law deems it illegal to fire an employee due to discrimination based on:
- Disability or Pregnancy
- National origin
- Citizenship status
- Genetic information
In addition, it is against federal law to terminate an employee for:
Filing a complaint for sexual harassment, discrimination, and other wrongful acts
Participating in the investigation of a complaint
Testifying in court against an employer
Indiana statutes also deem it against the law to terminate employees based on:
- Sealed or expunged criminal record
- Off-duty tobacco use
- Exercising the right to take time off for jury duty, military service, or Family Medical Leave

"Andrew Dutkanych provided legal counsel to me regarding my claim of wrongful termination, based on age and national origin factors. During the subsequent litigation, I found him to be resourceful, responsive, and tireless."
"I was wrongly and unfairly terminated by my employer. My Union Representative and attorney told me that I had no case or rights under state law. I met Kyle Biesecker and told him my story. He took my case and helped make my family and I whole again."
"I came to this firm after meeting with a different attorney who didn't seem very supportive of my case. When I met with Mr. Dutkanych he was very helpful and empathetic to my situation. My experience was great and I was educated every step of the way. "
