Wrongful termination expert witness candidates typically have experience in employment law, vocational rehabilitation, and/or human resources. Forensic accountants specializing in economic loss, earning capacity, and emotional distress damages as they relate to a wrongful termination claim are often called in to provide economic damage calculation.
Example cases include vocational experts for plaintiffs and defendants in wrongful termination; sexual harassment; age, sex, and disability discrimination cases; cases involving the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA); and employment and labor matters involving other claims of discrimination and wrongful termination.
The terms of the employment contract and the governing laws for wrongful dismissal vary by jurisdiction; wrongful termination covers many situations including:
Constructive dismissal occurs when an employee resigns for reasons resulting from the employer’s violation of the employee’s legal rights.
The US government agency Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing employment laws regarding discrimination against an applicant or employee due to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability.
