However, there are somethings that can happen that you just don't want to ignore or brush off. Unlawful employee termination, for one, isn't something that should be left alone.

Unfortunately, a good and just reason isn't always present and some employers are just not a great as you want them to be.

·    Dealing With The Aftermath--How do you return things to normal? This will look at what both employees and employers can do to deal with the effects of an unlawful termination and how they can move on.
