understanding workplace retaliation claims

At Vargas Guerra, LLP, we stand strong against retaliation in the workplace. Retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee for engaging in legally protected activity. This can include filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or opposing discriminatory practices. Our legal team is dedicated to defending those who have been subjected to such unfair treatment.

Forms of Retaliation: Retaliation can manifest in various ways, such as:

  • Termination or demotion.
  • Salary reduction or change in job duties.
  • Exclusion from training or professional development opportunities.
  • Hostile work environment or harassment.

Your Legal Protections Against Retaliation

Federal and State Laws:

  • Laws like the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act protect against retaliation.
  • State laws may offer additional protections against workplace retaliation.

Recognizing and Addressing Retaliation

  • Understanding Protected Activities: Know what constitutes a protected activity, such as reporting discrimination or participating in a legal proceeding.
