How Employment Retaliation Can Hurt You
Employment retaliation can take place when an employee makes a formal complaint or report with proper authorities. A worker should feel safe in reporting their employer when unsafe conditions or unlawful conduct is occurring within the organization. Whistleblower laws are in effect to protect employee rights in order to avoid employment retaliation. If an employer decides to participate in these types of actions, a qualified attorney can help a client enforce their legal rights.
