Standing Up For Employees Who Are Facing Retaliation
It takes courage to enforce your rights and speak up for yourself in the workplace. If your employer punished you for doing so – whether by firing you, terminating your position, demoting you or taking other adverse employment action against you – you may have a legal claim. It’s illegal for employers to retaliate against workers for exercising their employment rights.
You can turn to me, lawyer Yale Pollack, for guidance on your legal options regarding employer retaliation. I’m a New York City employment law attorney with more than 15 years of experience in this field of law. I understand all the nuances surrounding retaliation. I can help you pursue the outcome you deserve, whether it’s reinstatement, financial compensation or both.
What Is Employer Retaliation?
Employer retaliation refers to any kind of negative employment action taken against an employee who:
- Files a complaint or takes legal action to put a stop to discrimination or harassment
- Blows the whistle on illegal or unethical employment practices (whistleblower or qui tam cases)
- Reports wage and hour violations
- Takes other action to enforce their rights as an employee
Many of these cases involve wrongful termination. If you got fired or were pressured to resign, and you suspect that your employer was retaliating against you, it’s important to speak with a lawyer. I can review your situation and provide guidance on whether you have a claim.
