Recovering Compensation for Gender-Based Retaliation Claims
After you stood up for the rights of others and spoke out against gender discrimination in the workplace, you have good reason to believe that your employer would adhere to the laws enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Now that your employer has chosen to break these laws and take retaliatory action against you, you will more than likely have some legal opportunities to hold them accountable for such.
If you have or are currently facing some adverse employment action after reporting gender-based discrimination in the workplace, our Austin legal team is prepared to help you develop a legal strategy to hold your employer accountable for their actions.
Gender-Based Retaliation Claims
Employers are prohibited from taking adverse action against covered employs who engage in activities that are protected by law, including any activity taken in opposition to discrimination in the workplace, including the following:
- Reporting gender discrimination to your supervisor
- Participating in legal hearing intended to determine discrimination
- Refusing to obey an order you have reason to believe is discriminatory
Whatever the circumstances happen to be, our Austin legal team possesses the experience and resources to help you pursue your claim against your employer.
