Employer retaliation is a term used to describe the punishment of employees for taking part in a legally protected activity. It includes any negative actions involving an employee’s job, such as demotion, firing, discipline, salary reduction, and job or shift reassignment, but it can also refer to subtler actions. Federal laws have been designed to protect employees’ legal rights with provisions making acts of retaliation illegal.
Proving that workplace retaliation has occurred can be a challenge. The good news is that our employment law attorney has the experience necessary to determine whether you’ve been the victim of illegal retaliation by your employer. If you’ve filed a claim for workplace discrimination or even discussed the filing of such a claim, your employer may understandably feel threatened. They may accordingly conduct themselves in a manner that is intended to intimidate you in an attempt to prevent you from pursuing further legal action. When you feel that your employer has created a hostile work environment, reach out to The Leach Firm, P.A. to have our employment discrimination lawyer help you build an effective case.
