Austin Retaliation Lawyer
Under the law, workers enjoy a broad range of legal protections in the workplace. However, in some cases, workers who exercise their legal rights – for instance, to uncover illegal activity at the workplace – may be subject to retaliation on the part of their employer. This retaliation can include anything from hostility on the employer’s part to demotion or even termination.
Fortunately, retaliation against workers for exercising their rights under the law is illegal, and workers who have experienced this type of mistreatment are entitled to take legal action to assert their rights. As we at The Melton Law Firm, know how devastating retaliatory actions can be for Austin workers, and do whatever is possible to get them the justice and closure they need.
Retaliation Legal Claims
When you believe your employer has begun treating you differently out of retaliation for some action you committed or a characteristic, you may be able to pursue legal action. Some common reasons people file retaliation claims include:
- National Origin
- Whistleblower Retaliation
- Workers Comp Retaliation
- Nursing Home
- Hospital Worker
- Refusing to Perform an Illegal Act
- First Amendment
Ensuring your rights are fully protected is not always easy when an employer is acting in a retaliatory manner. Fortunately, with a lawyer’s experienced help and guidance, you can fight against such actions.
