After winning a wrongful termination lawsuit against a former employer, the employee should have the right to return to their old position if they wish. However, many people who win wrongful termination lawsuits decide to look for employment elsewhere moving forward as they fear it will be counterproductive.
Will Winning My Wrongful Termination Lawsuit Make it Harder to Find a New Job?
Winning a wrongful termination should not negatively affect your job search moving forward. It is illegal for former employers to retaliate against the employee by sharing confidential information or harming any future employment prospects. If your former employer displays any of these behaviors, you may be able to sue for defamation.
What Compensation Will I Receive for Winning my Case
