Employment Retaliation And The Law
“As an employee, you have certain rights. My mission is protecting those rights and seeking justice when those rights have been violated.” — Attorney Terrence B. Robinson
When Can you Claim Compensation for Being a Victim of Retaliation
You may be entitled to claim compensation if you have suffered retaliation for engaging in these legally protected activities:
- Reporting safety violations to OSHA or the occupational safety division of the Texas Department of Health
- Filing a workplace discrimination claim
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Requesting unpaid leave time
- Complaining about sexual harassment
- Requesting a reasonable accommodation for a disability
- Reporting the dumping of hazardous waste
- Reporting fraud or other criminal activity perpetrated by your employer
- Other legally protected activities
In general, retaliation cases are easier to prove in court than employment discrimination claims. It is only necessary to show that a person suffered an adverse employment action that may dissuade another employee from engaging in legally protected activity.
Our firm will vigorously represent you, seeking full compensation and other appropriate remedies.
