Employment law attorney, Roger Seat, can advise you on the many laws that prevent employers from retaliating against employees who exercise there legal rights as an employee. If an employee is subjected to termination or an adverse employment action for any of the following reasons, then that person may have a claim for illegal retaliation:
• For whistle blowing on violations or crimes
• For refusing to commit illegal acts for your employer
• A termination that violates the terms of an employment contract
• For discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, gender, disability, or for taking maternity leave
• Termination for reporting sexual harassment or discrimination
• Requests for FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) unpaid leave for the birth or adoption of a child; or to care for a child, spouse or parent
Please remember that retaliation claims are subject to rigid time limits and a person must normally file retaliation claims within either 180 days or 300 days of the alleged incident. Therefore, it is important that you contact a knowledgeable employment law attorney as soon after the incident as possible.
