When someone is employed by a company, they are guaranteed certain rights as employees under federal law. While most employers respect and abide by these rights, this is not always the case. If you are someone who recently took action against your employer due to wrongdoing he or she committed against you, and your employer then retaliated against you for taking action, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid claim against your employer. Please continue reading and speak with our Georgia employment law attorney to learn more about retaliation claims, whether you may have one, and how our firm can assist you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Does my employer have the right to retaliate against me?
Fortunately, employers in the United States absolutely do not have the right to retaliate against their employees after they’ve taken action against them for wrongdoing. In fact, federal law gives employees the specific right to take action against their employers for wrongdoing. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 explicitly states that employers are prohibited from discriminating against their employees on the basis of gender. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 also gives employees the right to not be discriminated against based on any other factor of which they cannot control, such as their national origin, race, sexual orientation, religion, and more. If you believe that your employer has recently discriminated against you because of any of these reasons, or that you were discriminated against, reported the incident, and that you were retaliated against for reporting the injustice, you should strongly consider speaking with our knowledgeable Atlanta employee rights attorney today. Discrimination in the workplace is unacceptable, and our firm has been dedicated to assisting those who have been discriminated against and retaliated against for years, and we are ready to put that experience to work for you.
