Pursuing a Retaliation Claims as a Nursing Home Employer
Nursing home facilities are strictly prohibited from taking adverse employment action against any employee who speaks out against the mistreatment of residents. Speaking up in defense of residents who may not have otherwise been able to ask for help is a brave thing to do, and your actions hardly warrant any form of punishment. Now that your employer has retaliated against you for acting as a whistleblower, you may have solid grounds for taking legal action in order to protect yourself against the unfair and harmful actions of your employer.
Recovering Compensation with Your Claim
There is no legally defensible reason that your employer should have taken any retaliatory employment action against you for what you have done. Bearing that in mind, our Austin legal team is prepared to work with you in developing a legal strategy intended to help you recover compensation for the damages associated with your employer’s actions, including, but not limited to, the following:
- The mental anguish you have experienced
- Your court costs
- A reasonable attorney’s fees
- Reinstatement (if you were summarily fired)
Our Austin legal team understands just how daunting it may be to face your employer now that they have chosen to act as they have; however, we will be there to help you work through each and every aspect of the legal process as we pursue compensation together.
