Retaliation

Dallas Retaliation Attorney

Has an Employer Unlawfully Punished You?

Speaking up about illegal discrimination, unpaid wages and overtime, or illegal business practices can be hard and require a little bravery. You might fear becoming a target for abuse, enduring more of it, or losing your job. While these fears are understandable, none of that is lawful behavior. In other words, if an employer strikes back at you whistleblowing on unlawful behavior or business practices, they can be held liable for another employment law violation: retaliation.

At Wcislo Law Group, PLLC, we help clients hold their employers accountable when they retaliate against them by litigating the matter in court. They may think they can do anything to you because they write your paychecks, but federal and state laws disagree. For example, you can’t be punished with reduced hours for trying to claim rightful overtime pay. You also can’t be fired because you complained about a supervisor’s racist comments or sexual harassment.

How Can I Recognize Retaliation?

Workplace retaliation doesn’t always look like sudden termination after complaining about unlawful conduct at work. Sometimes punishment can be delayed if an employer seeks to conceal retaliation with time, or it may be subtle and attributed to something else in an attempt to skirt retaliation law.

In any case, the following could be used as retaliation against employees:

  • Employment termination
  • Chosen for lay-off
  • Sudden reduction in hours
  • Passed over for promotion
  • Withdrawal or reduction in benefits
  • Demotion
  • Withheld paychecks and overtime pay

Sometimes an employer may even retaliate against reports of unlawful behavior regarding harassment or discrimination with more harassment and discrimination. Whether the retaliation comes in the guise of an employment decision or is as overt as more of the original unlawful behavior, you can hold an employer accountable n court with help from a litigation attorney.
