Austin Retaliation Lawyer

When you consider reporting an employer's misconduct, one of the most prominent questions you likely have is "Can my employer retaliate against me?" State and federal laws prohibit retaliation against those who report workplace misconduct and illegal activity. If your employer violates the law and retaliates against you anyway - such as wrongfully terminating you - you can file a lawsuit and recover compensation for the losses your employer caused you.

Retaliation claims are not limited to situations involving the actual reporting of misconduct - often referred to as whistleblowing. They can also arise when you give your employer notice of your intent to report improper activity, and your employer takes action against you.

Businesses of all sizes will vigorously defend themselves against accusations of retaliation, so it is vital to have an experienced attorney working to protect your rights.
