Asserting your rights can be stressful, especially if you fear that your employer will retaliate against you for filing a charge of discrimination or just complaining about illegal conduct. Fortunately, in many situations it is against the law for your employer to retaliate against you. We can help protect you against retaliation in several ways.
Retaliation is illegal under the anti-discrimination statutes, including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act. You are also protected if you’re a whistleblower under Georgia law. Our lawyers have represented countless employees for retaliation claims and can help you.
There are steps you can take to protect yourself against retaliation, both to prevent it in the first place, and to make sure that your complaint is well-documented. Once you begin the process of asserting a claim of discrimination or start blowing the whistle, you’ll want lawyers on your side who understand the process and who know how to protect you from the risks.
