Retaliation Claims after Reporting Age-Based Discrimination or Harassment
In an effort to promote transparency in the workplace, Austin employers are prohibited by federal law from taking retaliatory action against any employee who reports age-based discrimination or harassment. As the Austin employment attorneys at The Melton Law Firm know, however, workers face retaliatory action with some regularity in the Austin area.
If you have faced retaliatory action after reporting age-based discrimination in the workplace, you should speak with one of our Austin attorneys about developing a legal strategy against your Austin employer.
Basic Components of an Age-Based Retaliation Claim
To file an age-based retaliation claim, we will first need to be capable of proving the following three universal aspects of every retaliatory claim:
- You personally reported incidents of harassment or discrimination in the workplace
- Your employer took retaliatory action against you following your report
- You must be able to establish a causal relationship between your report and your employer’s action against you
Our Austin employment attorneys understand just how much will be on the line for you in this case; we will do everything we possibly can to help you hold your employer responsible.
