Queens Retaliation in the Workplace Attorneys
If a complaint that you make to your employer triggers some form of retaliation, you may have a valid claim. We will advise you on the appropriate next steps. Employers often choose to retaliate against an employee who makes a complaint because they believe retaliation will intimidate and silence that employee and other employees.
When employees are too afraid to speak out, problems like discrimination and harassment persist and can worsen. By pursuing legal action against your employer, we not only work to recover any and all damages available to you under the law, including punitive damages, we also send a message to employers that retaliation is not acceptable. By enforcing your rights, we help protect the rights of others.
