At some point in nearly everyone's life, he or she will have to care for someone else. Whether it is a child, an elderly parent or a sick spouse, caring for others is a part of life.

When you are fired from a job, it is easy to immediately think that somehow, someway your employer terminated you without just cause. On the one hand, you may be right. There are many ways that a company can open itself up to liability when they fire an employee. On the other hand, you may not be right. Many employees want to think they were wrongfully terminated, but in the end there is no evidence to support such a claim.
