Were You Wrongfully Terminated From Your Job?
In Wisconsin, there are many reasons your employer can fire you. As an “at-will” state, your boss can fire you for good cause or no cause at all. However, you cannot be fired from your job for discriminatory reasons. Discrimination means you are a qualified worker, but you were fired for reasons related to your:
- Race or color
- Age (40 and over)
- Beliefs, religion
- National origin, ancestry
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
- Arrest and conviction record
- Military status
If you think you were fired for one of these reasons, you may have cause to file a complaint with the state Equal Rights Division or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Negotiating On Your Own Behalf Can Be Intimidating And Confusing
Employees are protected by state and federal fair employment laws. Your rights as a worker vary depending on several factors such as:
- The type of job you work at
- What your duties are
- The size of the business you work for
- Your age
- Your contract or commission status
- How long you have been employed at the company
Negotiating with your employer or filing your own discrimination complaint can be overwhelming. It can be a complex process without the help of a lawyer who has the knowledge about what evidence to present for the optimal outcome. Ms. Sharma has over 20 years of experience helping employees whose rights have been violated at their workplace. She can help you negotiate with your employer. She can also help you with filing an EEOC complaint.
