Dallas Employment Retaliation Lawyer

Employment retaliation occurs when a worker is punished or adversely treated as a result of reporting about employment discrimination or harassment of self or another worker. Taking medical leave, maternity leave or military leave may also cause retaliation to occur. Retaliation as a failure to promote, retaliation for complaining about discrimination, defamation of character, intentional infliction of emotional distress, wrongful discharge, a denial of a salary increase or a demotion, are among other forms of retaliation in the workplace.

Know Your Employee Rights

Under the law in Texas, an employee should be free from discrimination and harassment. Employee actions in the workplace such as salary discussions, talking about working conditions with coworkers, refusing to join or joining a union, taking maternity or family leave, using employee benefits, refusing to engage in or reporting an unlawful act, among others, are protected by law.

You may have a claim for damages such as compensation for lost wages and, in some cases, punitive damages, if you were the victim of employment retaliation. To prevail, you must show a connection between the complaint and the harassment or retaliatory act. You must also show that your action is protected under the law. Our Dallas employment retaliation attorneys represent employees at many levels, in a wide variety of businesses.
