Wrongful Termination - lawsuit?

It is highly unlikely that you can proceed on a claim of wrongful termination in Pa. Pa. law only allows a claim for wrongful termination in very, very, very limited circumstances. From the information you provided it does not look like you fit those exceptions. However, I believe you may have other claims for monetary compensation. Please contact me directly so I can obtain additional facts.
