We Fight Back Against Unlawful Retaliatory Termination
Our Ohio wrongful termination attorneys can help
Employees have the right - some would even say they have a responsibility - to report certain wrongdoing at work. Wrongdoing like harassment, discrimination, illegal pay practices and unsafe work conditions, among other things. Employment laws protect employees who report these types of unlawful activities from retaliation from their employer. Despite these laws, some employers still retaliate against their employees for reporting unlawful activity in the workplace.
Employees also have a right to exercise their employment law rights in the workplace without fear of retaliation. For example, if eligible, an employee has the right to take protected medical leave, files a workers' compensation claim, or request a reasonable accommodation for a qualifying disability without retaliation by the employer.

What is retaliatory termination?
Retaliatory termination claims involve an employer firing an employee for taking actions that are protected under state or federal laws. These protected activities often involve the employee:
- Reporting safety violations at work (unsafe working conditions, etc.)
- Reporting illegal financial activity or business practices at work (tax fraud, embezzlement, etc.)
- Reporting wage law violations (not being paid overtime, etc.)
- Filing a sexual harassment complaint
- Filing a discrimination complaint
- Taking protected medical leave
These are just a few examples of a retaliatory termination. There are many others. If your employer unlawfully retaliated against you, contact us. We can help.
Don't let them push you around
Not surprisingly, employers do not generally admit to unlawful retaliation. Instead, employers generally will try to convince you and others that you were fired for your job performance or some other made-up reason. In many cases, an employer's retaliatory conduct takes place behind the scenes over a long period of time. Don't let your employer push you around. Let us stand up for you.
Chances are your employer will hire expensive lawyers to try to prove that your termination was lawful. These lawyers' job is to protect your employer's interest. That's why you need an experienced wrongful termination lawyer at Nilges Draher LLC to protect yours. Contact us today. We can help.
