Retaliation Claims Associated with Age Discrimination
Intended to protect the rights of those individuals who stand up for the rights of others, federal law prohibits employers from engaging in retaliatory action against any employee who exercises his or her rights by reporting discrimination or harassment in the workplace. Though these laws exist, many companies in the Austin area continue to take such action against their employees who report age discrimination and harassment.
If you have faced retaliatory action from your employer after reporting age harassment or discrimination, you should speak with one of the Austin age retaliation attorneys at The Melton Law Firm about the legal action that may be available to you.
