Retaliation Firing Is Illegal
Standing up for what you believe in can sometimes lead to unintended trouble in the workplace. If you notice illegal activity or management malfeasance, you may naturally voice your concern to your supervisor or employer. You could be labeled a “troublemaker” as result of speaking out. Consequently, you may fail to get an expected promotion or even get fired suddenly. This is an example of workplace retaliation. You were a “whistleblower,” and now your employer seeks to retaliate against you.
Federal laws protect employees from employer retaliation and retaliatory discharges. If you believe you lost your job because your employer sought to retaliate against you, seek experienced legal counsel right away.
