Helping You Protect Your Rights and Your Job
You were subject to discrimination or sexual harassment and you made a complaint. Soon after, you receive a reprimand for something you didn't do or that you feel is unfair, or you get a bad performance review, or you are passed over for promotion. You may even get fired.
These are all potential signs of employer retaliation. Our New York attorneys can help you determine if you are the subject of retaliation. We can represent you in an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint or in a lawsuit against your former employer seeking compensation for the loss of your job.
The law firm of Shulman Kessler has years of experience in representing the victims of employer retaliation. We know the signs and we know how to fight these cases. Your job is not just an income source; it helps define who you are. When this is taken from you because you stood up for your rights, your employer is engaging in illegal behavior.
Long Island and New York City Attorneys Handling Wrongful Dismissal
Your employer may take adverse actions against you because of a workplace complaint or because of a whistleblower incident, where you informed your employer or the state or federal government about illegal activity within the company. Again, this behavior is illegal, and your employer should be held accountable for it. Adverse actions involving employer retaliation may include:
- Refusal to promote
- Unwarranted bad performance reviews
- Denying pay raises or other benefits
- Severe reduction in hours
- Change in assignment to a less desirable job
- Creating or allowing a hostile work environment because of the complaint
Employment laws are designed to allow employees to assert their rights when they believe there has been a violation of state or federal law. If you believe your employer has retaliated against you, speak to our lawyers to learn more about your rights.
