Teacher accuses school district of wrongful termination

Many individuals in California and elsewhere place a great deal of time and effort into the pursuit of their preferred careers. Should a person be subjected to unfair or unjust treatment during employment, he or she may suffer in various areas of life, personal and professional alike. A teacher in another state has recently filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against a school district after she claims she was forced into resigning from her position.

The woman has spent the past seven years teaching at the school, and has reportedly received high scores on evaluations each year. However, in the most recent evaluation, she received low marks in each category, which other teachers claim is a sign that someone is being targeted for termination. The woman also claims that the scores were a means to bully her and force her to leave her position.

She also asserts that after being less than four minutes late to class on a recent school day, she was subjected to unfair treatment, despite the fact that there was no previous issue on record in this area. According to the lawsuit, she was subjected to humiliation and harassment up until the point in which she felt forced to resign. Following her resignation, the low scores she received during the recent evaluation were allegedly changed to reflect higher scores that match her previous marks.

Being subjected to unfair treatment in the workplace can have a significant impact on a person's future. Those who experience a similar situation may wish to protect their rights, potentially prompting a need for guidance in the process. An attorney can thoroughly examine the situation and provide a client in California with assistance in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible through a wrongful termination lawsuit.
