Workplace Retaliation

Our Texas workplace retaliation lawyers represent whistle-blowers and victims of workplace retaliation. If you believe you are a victim of retaliation, please contact us.

Retaliation is rampant. Judges and juries are far more likely to believe retaliation claims than many of the underlying discrimination claims. It is not unusual for an employee claiming race discrimination and retaliation to lose the discrimination yet still prevail on their claim for retaliation.

A retaliation claim generally has three elements: (1) the employee opposed discrimination or took protected activity, (2) the employee suffered adverse action, and (3) the employer took the adverse action because the employee opposed discrimination or took protected activity.

In an ideal workplace retaliation case, the only element at issue is the third element. For example, an employee complains to the EEOC about race discrimination and two weeks later is fired. Clearly the employee engaged in protected activity and suffered adverse action. All that remains is for a jury to find that the complaint was the cause of the termination; which would be logical given the timing.

Of course, if an employee fails to complain or to complain properly, he cannot bring a retaliation claim. This is a compelling reason to contact us as soon as possible, before you suffer an adverse action. We may be able to make sure your concerns are forwarded to HR and/or the EEOC in a way that insures you are protected against future retaliation. If you believe you have been retaliated against or may be retaliated against in the future, please our Texas workplace retaliation attorneys today.

Client Reviews

I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.

Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
