Most people who work don’t head in everyday just because they enjoy the work. Almost everyone works because they need to earn a paycheck to support themselves. This is one thing that some employers count on. They think that the need for a job will keep workers hushed about the things that go on at a company.
We know that some employees are forced to decide between speaking up about illegal activities and keeping their paycheck. This isn’t a position that any workers should be in. When this does happen and you make the decision to speak up, you might notice that the dynamics at the workplace change.
Some employers or their agents decide to punish you for speaking up. This is known as retaliation. Employers can’t legally take retaliatory actions against employees who made a factual complaint about things within the company. If you think that your employer is retaliating against you, we can help you to address the issue.
In some cases, an employer might just terminate your employment because you made the complaint. Doing this is illegal, so many employers will try to cite other reasons for the termination. We can help you to sort through the situation and unearth the real reason for the termination.
Wrongful termination is something that shouldn’t be tolerated. Instead, you should take swift action to let the employer know that you aren’t going to stand for any type of illegal action at the company. Taking this stance might not be easy but it might be the key to getting the conditions in the workplace improved. It might also send the message that you know your rights.
