Retaliation



retaliationThe law ensures protection for employees who blew the whistle on their employer or who have taken action against their employer for discrimination or some other unlawful action. This means that if you have filed a complaint with the Department of Labor for a wage and hour violation, for a work safety issue, or a workers’ compensation claim and have been terminated, treated differently, or retaliated against in any away, you may have a potential retaliation claim.

Retaliation can come in the form of a demotion, a reduction in pay, a reduction in hours, a reduction in duties, failure to promote, and more.  If you feel as though you have been the subject of unlawful discrimination, it’s time you seek help.  Other examples of retaliation may include:

  • Complaining about Employment Discrimination;
  • Terminating you because you refused to violate a law;
  • Terminating you because you agreed to testify at a legal proceeding;
  • Terminating you because you reported something illegal.
