Austin Sexual Harassment Retaliation Lawyers
Intended to punish and prevent employees from reporting instances or patterns of sexual harassment, employer retaliation is illegal, and Austin employers who engage in this behavior may be held financially liable for their actions. Austin employees should feel comfortable to approach their employers to report any experienced or observed sexual harassment, but employers who take adverse employment actions against those who do so are actively tolerating and indirectly participating in that sexual harassment.
If you enlist the assistance of The Melton Law Firm, our Austin sexual harassment retaliation lawyers will do everything they can to recover any financial damages sustained by your employer’s sexual harassment retaliation.
Damages Associated With Sexual Harassment Retaliation

- Back pay dating to termination, suspension, or demotion

- Mental anguish
Our Austin legal team will do everything they can to hold Austin employers financially responsible for any form of sexual harassment retaliation and, thereby, prevent any further retaliation against their employees.
