The illegal reprisals that employers take against their workers can significantly affect the professional life of the victim. Retaliation can be reflected in different actions that the worker takes after a worker decided to report an irregularity in the company, such as:
- Unfair dismissal
- Reduction in wages or hours of work
- Remove activities
- Get down or change positions to one that does not favor you
- Unfair or mistreated punishments.
- Among others.
Fortunately, laws that protect workers help employees who suffered from illegal retaliation get the justice they deserve.
Protection can be found within these laws for all those employees who have decided to report an irregular activity in the company such as mistreatment, harassment, insecurity in the workplace, or for having taken a period of absence that is established as a right within the Law on Family and Medical Leave or the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This means that if you feel that there is something wrong within the company or you believe that your employee has treated you unfairly, you can demand or give notice to the corresponding authorities such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the employer for which you work you should not take any action against you as you are protected by law.
However, in the event that he has taken any type of action that affects you due to the fact that you have raised your voice about a labor problem, you should contact an employment law attorney to file your claim. A lawyer specialized in this area will be able to help you recover compensation for what you have lost while the employee punished you.
Thanks to these laws, your lawyer will be able to protect you and your professional career by doing justice after you have been treated unfairly.
