If your employer has fired you or threatened to do so because you’ve engaged in activities protected under the law, it’s not only unreasonable, it is also illegal. Employers have been known to fire people that have filed a Workers' Compensation claim or have been injured, harmed or abused at work. This is called retaliatory discharge and is only carried out in hopes that said employee will refrain from taking legal action against their employer to keep their job.
If you believe that you have been fired unjustifiably and have been discharged because you were engaged in protected activities, our law firm can help. We can stand up to your employer and get you the compensation you are entitled to. Monetary and punitive damages may also be available to make up for the lost wages and benefits as well as emotional suffering caused by the retaliatory discharge.
