Does Your Work Situation Qualify As Wrongful Termination?

We Will Review The Facts And Give You A Candid Assessment

Wisconsin is an at-will employment state, which means that an employer can fire an employee unless the reason for the termination is unlawful. Examples of unlawful reasons to terminate include an employee’s:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Religion
  • Opposition to Discrimination
  • Opposition to an employer’s other unlawful practices (whistleblowing)

There May Be Other Reasons Your Termination Broke The Law

Fox & Fox, S.C., an employment and civil rights law firm with offices in Madison, Milwaukee and the Chicago metro area, represents clients in wrongful termination lawsuits, as well as the full range of cases involving workplace discrimination and retaliation and whistleblowing. Our legal team has the experience to distinguish between incidents in which a worker has been treated unlawfully by an employer and cases when a termination may feel unfair, but is lawful.

Our employment law lawyers advocate on behalf of individuals who have been wrongfully terminated from a job or otherwise discriminated or retaliated against in the workplace. Many of these lawsuits are defended aggressively and outcomes are based on nuances in the law. We spend a great deal of time and resources vetting cases in order to be confident those we do accept can be successfully litigated, if necessary.

Filing The Case

In most cases, before filing a discrimination or retaliation lawsuit, you must file a complaint with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development’s Equal Rights Division or the Equal Opportunities Commission (EEOC), which are the administrative agencies that enforce laws prohibiting discrimination. The attorneys at Fox & Fox, S.C. have decades of experience in dealing with these administrative agencies and the investigations they conduct.


Most of our employment cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. This means we collect attorney fees only if we help you obtain a recovery, either through a negotiated settlement or a court verdict.
