Pursuing a Disability Retaliation Claim
Employers in the Austin area should support individuals who speak out against discrimination in the workplace. While it is easy enough to agree with this claim, there are companies in the area that have actively punished employees who have done just that.
Since federal law prohibits companies from taking any retaliatory action against employees who report discrimination in the workplace, you may be eligible to pursue legal action against your employer if you have been punished for taking a stand against any form of discrimination, including disability discrimination.
Disability Retaliation Claims
When you report discrimination in the workplace, you have every reason to expect that all parties will be properly dealt with, including yourself. Bearing that in mind, employers are prohibited from engaging in retaliatory action after you engage in any of the following protected activities:
- Opposition to prohibited discrimination
- Engaging in a discrimination legal proceeding
Whatever the particulars of your claim happen to be, our Austin legal team is dedicated to helping you fight to maintain your rights and protect your future from your employer so that you can move on with your life.
