Q: I complained that my co-worker was being sexually harassed, and now my employer is cutting my hours! Is this legal?
A: It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for complaining about discrimination or harassment – even if that discrimination or harassment does not involve you. Call us and we will advise you on whether you have a case.
Q: I complained that my supervisor was engaging in illegal activity, and two years later I was fired by the company. Is this retaliation?
A: In general, the longer the time period between your complaint and your termination, the more difficult it is to prove that the termination was retaliatory. Call us and one of our experienced attorneys will provide a free consultation.
Q: My employer terminated me for being excessively tardy. At the termination meeting, I told them I was tardy each time because of a disability that I have. Can they do that?
A: It depends on many factors, the most important being whether you told your employer about your disability or restrictions prior to their decision to terminate you.
Call us and we will evaluate whether you have a valid claim.
