Quick Facts You Should Know About Workplace Retaliation

Whether you think that you have a workplace retaliation case or you simply want to arm yourself with information before you decide to blow the whistle on shady company practices, there are a few facts that you should know about retaliation in the work environment. The following are a few facts for you to keep in mind:

  • Retaliation comes in a wide variety of forms. It could involve an employer getting even with an employee because they did something they didn’t like, possibly denying rewards such as pay raises because of actions the employee took and much more. Simply put, retaliation is something that happens because of another separate incident.
  • There are numerous laws that protect employees from retaliation. If you believe you have been the victim of workplace retaliation, you have a wide variety of legal avenues to help you take action against the offender.
  • If you take an offender to court, you need to be able to prove that there was some form of adverse action taken against you, that the action that prompted that adverse action was a legally protected activity and that you could establish a causal connection between the legal activity and the adverse action.
  • You do not need to prove that your employer was vengeful or malicious.
  • Even if you quit your job, there are still situations in which you can be a victim of retaliation or file a retaliation suit.

Whenever you become aware of wrongdoing within your workplace, you should report it to the proper authorities, even if there is a risk of retaliation. Should retaliation occur, contact the knowledgeable Dallas attorneys at Whistleblower Law for Managers immediately.

Testimonials
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
