Employer Retaliation

Florida Employer Retaliation Lawyers

Serving Palm Beach, Broward & Miami-Dade Counties

Both federal and state law protects workers from unlawful retaliation by their employers. For example, if you filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), your employer cannot legally take steps to punish you. If you believe you have suffered unlawful retaliation by your employer, you should speak with one of our experienced employment retaliation attorneys as soon as possible. Proving your claim calls for specific evidence and is subject to specific time limits.

Employer Retaliation Cases in Florida

Employer retaliation can take many forms, including harassment, firing, being passed over for a promotion, being demoted, being given unpleasant work duties or schedules, loss of benefits, and more. If you make a claim against your employer that is later dismissed, you are also protected from retaliation under the law.

Employers are prohibited from retaliating against their employees when these employees engage in the following:

  • Filing workers’ compensation claims
  • Filing a discrimination claim against the employer
  • Cooperating with authorities when their employer is under investigation
  • Whistleblower disclosures
  • Union activities
  • Refusing to cooperate with their employer’s unlawful activities, whether financial, environmental, or other

NK Legal Group is dedicated to the protection of employee rights in the workplace. The laws creating these protections are complicated and will require an investigation into the situation to discover and obtain evidence proving up your claim.

A successful claim can result in compensation for damages along with other actions to make up the damage. These actions will depend on the specifics of your situation and may include such considerations as back pay, reinstatement of your position, restored benefits, and more.
