Filing a Retaliation Claim as a Hospital Worker
Hospitals are legally obligated to allow their employees to exercise their rights to speak out when laws or regulations are being violated. Despite these employment rights, it is not altogether uncommon for hospital workers who take a stand against unlawful actions at their place of employment to face retaliation for doing such.
If you have been punished by your employer for exercising your rights as an employee, you should consider taking legal action to recover the damages associated with your employer’s response.
