When You Should Hire An Attorney For Employment Claims
Wrongful termination is the issue many people think of first when pondering the usefulness of an employment law attorney. While wrongful termination is something to be aware of, there are many other matters that require an attorney. We also work with clients impacted by severance agreement terminations to ensure their right to a fair deal.
If your employer is violating your rights in any way, we can assist. Our experienced attorneys will work with you to determine if you have a case against your employer and what can be done to recover your losses.
What Is Workplace Retaliation?
Retaliation is different from discrimination. Both qualify as employment claims, but retaliation means that your employer is punishing you for making a complaint against them. You have every right to levy a discrimination complaint against your employer, and they cannot punish you for doing so. If they do punish you for bringing a complaint, you may have a retaliation claim against them. Ways your employer may punish you for bringing a discrimination or harassment complaint include:
- Docked pay
- Poor scores on an employee review
- Termination of a severance agreement
If your employer takes any of these actions against you for raising a complaint, you should speak to a lawyer. Our team at Poncio Law Offices, P.C., is deeply experienced in retaliation cases in San Antonio and surrounding areas in Texas. We will help determine if you have a case against your employer and defend your rights if you do.
