Experienced Attorney Representing Whistleblowers in Texas and Nationwide
Protection from Employer Retaliation | Federal and State Claims
In the pursuit of maximum profits, many employers cut corners and engage in illegal or unethical acts. As an employee, you shouldn’t have to fear termination or other reprisals for opposing, reporting or refusing to participate in such acts. Fortunately, there are federal laws that ban a broad range of adverse employment actions in retaliation for exercising your legal rights. In addition, Texas state employees are protected by the Texas Whistleblower Act.
If you have been asked by an employee to engage in illegal or unethical conduct, or if you are aware of such conduct at your place of employment, it’s imperative that you take immediate action to protect yourself from retaliation. Bailey & Galyen can help.
At the Texas law firm of Bailey & Galyen, we fight for the rights of workers across the state and throughout the country, including employees who either fear or have been subjected to retaliation for reporting wrongful conduct by an employer.
