Retaliation

Employer Retaliation in Houston

Retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse action against the employee for reporting or complaining about any acts of discrimination at the workplace. Usually, the retaliation can be in the form of employment termination or unfair disciplining of the employee. To some extent, it could also include other actions such as a decrease in pay or less desirable assignments, which are intended to negatively affect the employee’s working conditions. 

It’s difficult to work in an environment where you feel rejected, and this can affect your overall productivity. Usually, most people get fed up and quit the job. However, that’s not the ultimate solution to harassment at the workplace. Strict laws are protecting the rights of an employee, and, therefore, consider filing a suit to be compensated for the emotional distress inflicted on you by the discriminative acts. 

If you choose to forward the matter to court, don’t dare to face your employer on your own. They’re going to hire eloquent attorneys who may only add to your frustration. To level the playing field, hire an employment attorney to represent you in the case. The legal expert will examine the elements of your case, including the evidence of retaliation before forging ahead. From here, they’ll advise you on the right path to take.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Retaliation a Form of Discrimination?

Yes. Retaliation happens when an employer discriminates an employer for the legal acts that the latter has done against the company. For example, if the company has demoted you for filing a claim against them, then it can be considered as retaliation.

Should I Quit My Job After Filing a Case Against My Employer?

You don’t have to quit your job if you have filed a discrimination case against your employer. Your position and work stays the same and you cannot be discriminated against after you have filed a claim against your employer. However, in grave cases such as sexual harassment, it is important that you resign from employment after filing the case. Your lawyer will ensure that you get the rightful compensation even when you have already resigned from work.

What is a Whistleblower?

A whistleblower is someone who discloses vital information that she or he reasonably believes is evidence of illegal activities of the employer. If you are a whistleblower, it is important that you report to the appropriate regulatory agency or law enforcement agency in order to receive protection. You will also be under the protection of Texas Whistleblower Act.

How Do I Prove Retaliation?

In order to prove retaliation, you need to establish three elements: (1)the you have engaged in a protected activity; (2) you have suffered an adverse employment action; and (3) there is a causal link between the protected activity and the adverse employment action.
