Don’t Accept Unjust Retaliation By Your Employer
Employers are generally well aware of laws they must abide by with respect to employees, such as:
- No tolerance of racial, age or gender discrimination, to name a few types
- No sexual harassment or allowance of sexual harassment by other employees or anyone in the workplace
- Adherence with wage and hour laws
They should also conduct training in such a way that employees will know how to report wrongs they may experience in the work environment.
At Poncio Law Offices, P.C., we counsel and represent clients who have been demoted, terminated or otherwise mistreated in the workplace in retaliation for reporting violations of employment laws.
Examples Of Illegal Retaliation
Besides training employees how to avoid or report illegal actions such as fostering a hostile work environment, employers also must not retaliate against whistleblowers or employees who are targeted by wrongful behaviors such as discrimination or report instances of sexual harassment.
Laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Chapter 21 of the Texas labor code make it clear that retaliation is not permissible by employers. If you have been the target of retaliation, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against your employer for that reason.
A knowledgeable and effective employment law attorney may be able to get the results you need in settlement negotiations without going to court.
