Common workplace retaliation cases
Workplace retaliation can take many forms. For example, workplace retaliation may occur when workers report illegal actions taken by co-workers or supervisors. These reports of illegal action might involve workplace discrimination or harassment. Workplace retaliation may also occur when workers complaint about unsafe work conditions or exercise some other protected right - like taking medical leave or filing a workers' compensation claim.
Instead of taking these types of complaints seriously, some employers punish the person who made the complaint. Common examples of workplace retaliation include:
- Firing the employee who complained,
- Demoting or transferring the employee who complained,
- Harassing the employee who complained,
- Changing the complaining employee's schedule, or
- Giving the complaining employee negative performance reviews for no reason.
These are just a few examples of an employer's unlawful retaliation. If you believe your employer is retaliating against you, contact us today for your free case evaluation. We can help.
We can stand up for your rights
There are certain government agencies that investigate unlawful conduct in the workplace. For example, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will investigate complaints of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, among other things.
Unfortunately, the EEOC and other like agencies are overwhelmed with these types of complaints. That means the complaints may not get the individual attention they deserve.
Let us give your complaint the attention it deserves. Contact us today to talk to a member of our team who will listen to your story and explain your options.
Remember, if your rights were violated, you only have a limited amount of time to take action against your employer. The sooner you get an employment law attorney involved, the better. That is why it is important to contact us today to schedule your free, confidential case evaluation. We can help.
