Workplace Retaliation, Explained
Employer retaliation can take many forms. If you have experienced any of the following, you may have a whistleblower retaliation claim against your employer:
- Job loss, demotion or forced retirement
- Discrimination or harassment: Assigning additional job duties, making inappropriate comments, making threats against employee, warning future employers about the employee, etc.
State and federal laws protect employees against retaliation. When an employee’s rights have been violated, he or she may have a claim against the employer and may be eligible for compensation. If you have lost your job or otherwise been unlawfully treated by your employer after reporting misconduct, please talk to one of our attorneys as soon as possible.
