Austin Constructive Discharge Attorneys
Constructive discharge is a legal term for situations in which an employee feels that they must resign from their position in order to escape an otherwise intolerable work environment. Additionally, a worker’s work environment must be so intolerable that any reasonable person would rather quit than continue to work under those conditions. So, when an Austin employer or coworker engages in sexual harassment, and nothing is done to resolve the situation, an employee may be forced into a constructive discharge.
If you have been sexually harassed at your Austin area job, the Austin constructive discharge attorneys at The Melton Law Firm understand why you may have felt compelled to resign. We will aggressively defend the rights of any Austin worker and aggressively pursue financial compensation from any Austin employer that tolerates sexual harassment.
Financial Restitution for Constructive Discharge
Sexual harassment in any situation is unacceptable. When an Austin employer engages in or tolerates sexual harassment and is found to be responsible for your constructive discharge, you may seek financial compensation for any of the following:
- Any fees incurred by your legal representation
- Back or front-pay to cover all past or potential earnings
- Compensatory damages for any pain and suffering
- Punitive damages to punish an employer
The financial damages you may sustain as the result of a constructive discharge can be substantial; we will aggressively pursue financial compensation from any employer who causes the constructive discharge of any one of its employees.
