Workplace Retaliation Claims | Protecting Workers Who Face Sanctions for Exercising Legal Rights
When your employer engages in illegal or unethical practices, it can put you in an extremely difficult position. If you do the right thing and either refuse to participate, or report your employer to appropriate officials, you can risk termination or face punishment from your employer for doing the right thing. Fortunately, there are laws that protect workers from retaliation on the job for exercising a legal right. If you have been the victim of wrongful retaliation by your employer, Bailey & Galyen can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, we bring more than 14 years of experience to employees across the state of Texas who have been victims of wrongful retaliation by employers. We place a premium on personal service and attention, taking the time to learn the unique circumstances of your claim, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the outcome you want. We’ll work hard to make certain you fully understand your rights and your options, as well as the status of your claim and your prospects for success, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to move forward. We are committed to open and effective communication, and will strive to return all calls and emails in a timely manner.
Our Representation in Cases Involving Employer Retaliation
We aggressively protect the rights of workers who have faced retribution in the workplace for:
- The reasonable exercise of their rights under the law, including filing a valid workers’ compensation or unemployment compensation claim, requesting or taking FMLA benefits, forming or joining a union, complaining about harassment or discrimination, or participating in the legal process as a party or a witness
- Refusing to participate in illegal or unethical practices, or in behavior that is contrary to public policy
- Reporting an employer for violation of the law, for unethical practices, or otherwise engaging in activity considered “whistleblowing”
- Reporting, complaining about or filing legal action related to wage and hour or Fair Labor Standards Acts violations
We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses, including wrongfully denied raises or lost wages due to actual or constructive termination. If appropriate and desired, we will also work to get you your job back.
