Greenville Wrongful Termination Attorney
You depend on your job to earn a living and support your family. For 30 years, Greenville wrongful termination attorney Andy Arnold has helped breadwinners as well as locally owned businesses with wrongful discharge cases. He has helped to recover millions in lost wages, emotional distress damages, and even punitive damages. Andy has successfully litigated wrongful discharge cases in both state and federal courts. Truthfully, most cases never make it to a jury trial; negotiated severance packages and settlement agreements are the norm. But, to get the most value and best deal, you need someone who has “been there and done that” inside the courtroom. If your lawyer does not have a track record of success in the courtroom handling employment law matters, then you will not be taken seriously.
In fact, in 1995, just three years out of law school, Andy tried his first federal jury trial and won. The defendant was a multimillion restaurant chain and their legal counsel was Andy’s former law firm and supervising partner. Since then, Andy has continued to be successful in helping breadwinners get paid for their wrongful discharge claims. Not everyone has a viable claim, but some have claims that are just too much to walk away from. Those are the claims that we handle.
South Carolina is often touted as a top state for doing business, namely for its labor climate as a right-to-work state, but this is usually just an invitation for employer mischief. “At will” employment allows employers to terminate an employee “for a good reason, bad reason or no reason at all.” However, there are exceptions. These exceptions include claims involving express and implied employment contracts, retaliation, discrimination, and a few others. So, when an employer violates an employment contract, retaliates when you exercise your rights, or fires you because of your race, sex, age, disability, pregnancy, or other unlawful reasons, you may have a legal claim for wrongful termination.
And, too often, professionals, salespersons, and other employees are terminated and have non-compete agreements. Andy Arnold has experience fighting non-compete contracts, non-solicit agreements, and non-disclosure agreements. His blog Beat Your Non-Compete provides guidance to thousands with non-compete agreements and who simply want to continue in their chosen profession.
