Employment Lawyers Fighting For Victims Of Workplace Retaliation
The law protects employees who report illegal actions in the workplace, whether they are telling a manager about illegal discrimination or harassment, reporting to the government about OSHA safety violations or illegal labor practices, or seeking justice for unfair wage and hour practices. Our employment law attorneys know how to make sure that employees are defended from retaliation. Lawyers at Jachimowicz Law Group have decades of experience handling these cases.
Your employer cannot retaliate against you for complaining about or opposing discrimination, illegal or fraudulent activities (whistleblowing), or issues involving health or safety of employees.
Unfortunately, some employers either are unaware that the law protects employees from retaliation, or they do not understand what actions constitute unlawful employer retaliation.
- Your employer cannot fire, demote or harass you simply because you made these complaints.
- Your employer cannot change the conditions of your work in such a way that it limits your income or promotion potential.
- Your employer cannot threaten you or harass you.
- Your employer cannot take action to create a hostile work environment by encouraging other employees to threaten or harass you.
