Are You the Victim of Workplace Retaliation?

Your employer cannot retaliate against you for bringing a lawful claim against it, asserting a legal right or participating in a protected activity. The following are a few of many examples of prohibited actions:

  • Retaliation for filing a workers' compensation claim
  • Retaliation for taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act ( FMLA ) or other state or federal laws
  • Retaliation for whistleblowing
  • Retaliation for bringing a discrimination claim against an employer/reporting a Title VII violation
  • Retaliation for opposing harassment or discrimination in the workplace
  • Retaliation for making a claim under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) or Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Retaliation for reporting an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violation
  • Retaliation prohibited by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Each law that protects an employee against workplace retaliation is different. Therefore, it is difficult to generalize what activity is protected and who may bring a retaliation claim under the various laws. Our Detroit workplace retaliation lawyers will investigate your case and determine the appropriate actions, whether your case involves a Title VII retaliation claim or another workplace retaliation claim.

Even the way that you bring a complaint to your employer matters. For example, you may be fired for saying that you didn't get paid overtime but you cannot be fired for saying that you will go to the Department of Labor if you don't get paid. To protect your legal rights, contact our law firm before you speak with your employer.
