NYC & NJ Retaliation Lawyer
Defending Clients Against Acts of Retaliation in the Workplace
Has your employer retaliated against you? Were you wrongfully terminated from your job because you spoke up about illegal or unethical behavior you witnessed? Were you denied a raise or demoted because you filed a discrimination complaint in your workplace? If so, you may be a victim of unlawful retaliation by your employer. It’s your right to speak up, and you should not be punished for it.
It is illegal to fire an employee for complaining about a protected activity. Title VII (and many other laws) prohibit employers from discriminating as well as retaliating against employees who engage in protected activities, such as reporting or opposing unlawful employer behavior.
We have extensive experience representing clients who experience employer retaliation as a result of filing a number of different employment law claims. We help employees navigate the complexities of workplace retaliation cases. We possess a deep understanding of federal and state laws that protect employees from retaliation, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Whistleblower Protection Act.
