Will suing my ex-employer make it more difficult for me to find future employment?
This is a fear that many terminated employees are concerned about. My experience is that future employers rarely know that you have a claim. Also, your ex-employer may be much more concerned about saying anything bad against you for fear that they will be sued for slander. This is especially true if you are making a claim against them. Also, many statues have anti-retaliation provisions. This means that if your ex-employer attempts to keep you from getting re-employed, they may be in violation of the anti-retaliation rules and this could lead to a separate lawsuit or additional claims. Also if you are making a claim against your ex-employer it is in their benefit that you get re-employed as soon as possible so that you incur less in damages. I would be willing to discuss this information with you in more detail.
