Employment Retaliation Is A Real Thing
We Represent Workers In Wisconsin And Chicago Who Are Victimized
Many workers who face or witness unlawful employment practices are justifiably reluctant to report such activities. For many employees, the threat of termination, demotion and other adverse consequences is too daunting to risk taking action.
State and federal employment law statutes recognize this problem and provide employees with strong legal protections against retaliation by employers. These statutes protect employees who engage in such protected activities as:
- Filing formal complaints internally or to an outside agency
- Providing testimony or other assistance
- Other informal opposition to employee rights violations, as long as such opposition is not itself unduly disruptive or unlawful
Act Promptly If You Are A Victim Of Retaliation
If your employer has retaliated against you or you have concerns about the consequences of reporting unlawful workplace activities, it is important to consult with an experienced employment law attorney.
At Fox & Fox, S.C., our attorneys are strong advocates for employees facing retaliation and other unfair and unlawful workplace activities. We handle a broad range of retaliation cases, including those in which employees have asserted their rights regarding discrimination, harassment, family and medical leave, wage and hour violations, whistleblowing, and other employee benefits and protections.
What Constitutes Retaliation?
Retaliation can take many forms. Some of the most common ways in which employers retaliate against employees include:
- Wage reduction
- Assigning difficult or unpleasant work duties
- Disciplinary measures
- Negative performance evaluations
- Giving a negative reference
