If you were fired from your job as a result of wrongful termination, it’s not unusual to wonder if you can get your job back. While friends and family may wonder why you’d want to go back to a company where this happened to you, everyone who does has their reasons.
You may have enjoyed the work you were doing, your coworkers, or even the overall company itself. The job may have been a crucial steppingstone in your career or served another greater purpose, such as a pension upon your retirement. The wrongful termination was also likely the doing of one or a few individuals who could be avoided in the future or may have already been removed from the company.
Suffice it to say, wanting your job back is understandable and valid. But is it possible?
The good news is yes. When you pursue legal action against your employer for wrongful termination, typically the lawsuit involves monetary damages such as back pay and front pay. In addition to these, however, other remedies like reinstatement are possible. The operative word here is “possible” because nothing is guaranteed in a lawsuit, least of all getting your job back.
You don’t have to fight for reinstatement, and by no means is it standard protocol for a wrongful termination lawsuit. If, however, you truly valued your job and want to fight to get it back, an employment law attorney can help.
