Philadelphia Employee Rights Lawyers
Retaliation in the Workplace
The law encourages employees to come forward when they believe their employment rights are being violated by making it illegal for your employer to punish you for voicing your concerns. Your employer may not retaliate against you for complaining about discrimination, harassment, or other violations of your rights in the workplace. The law also protects from retaliation employees who participate in investigations into their employer’s alleged discrimination, harassment, or other unlawful actions.
Your employer violates the law if it negatively or adversely impacts your employment as a result of your registering a complaint even if your complaint ends up being unfounded. As long as you have a genuine and reasonable basis for believing your complaint is legitimate, your employer may not retaliate against you for voicing your complaint. Sidney L. Gold & Associates is the Philadelphia employment lawyer that can help you with your potential retaliation claim.
