Retaliation Lawyer Serving San Antonio
Unfortunately, retaliation in the workplace is rampant. Often times, judges and juries are more likely to believe a claim for retaliation. In fact, it is not uncommon for an employee to lose on a claim for unlawful discrimination and win the claim for retaliation.
There are three elements of a retaliation case. First, an employee must oppose discrimination or take some form of protected activity (like complain about sexual harassment). Second, the employer must make some adverse employment action against the employee (like firing or demoting the employee). Third, the employer must have taken the adverse employment action because the employee opposed discrimination or took some form of protected activity.
It is important to note that an employee cannot bring a claim for retaliation in the workplace if the employee fails to complain. This is a good reason to contact our discrimination attorneys as soon as possible, before you suffer an adverse action.
If you have been retaliated against or fear that you may be retaliated against in the workplace, please contact our employment lawyers.
