Know Your Rights!
Federal and state employment laws recognize that your employers are in positions of powers and can retaliate against their employees who complain. These laws are put into place to recognize the importance of eliminating any type of discrimination in the workplace, as well as improper practices an employer might inflict upon their employees. It is for this reason that as an employee you should be aware of your rights, and seek a retaliation lawyer with experience that can help you build your case to ensure that your rights are protected and you aren’t on the receiving end of unfair treatment from your employer.
As an employee you’re entitled to engage in protected actions to oppose any type of discrimination in the workplace. If it is followed by any adverse action taken by your employer. Such as firing, demotion, denying pay raises, and benefits and so forth. Then you are within your rights to file a claim. When actions such as this are overt, then there can often be documentation involved and we recommend our clients to collect any evidence and documentation that can be used to build their cases.
