Advocating For Victims Of Retaliation
Until recently, you had been known as an asset in your workplace. You had dedicated years of service to your employer and received positive work evaluations at each annual review. Guided by a strong sense of right and wrong, you decided to speak out about an employer’s ethical violation, failure to follow procedure or observation of falsified documentation.
Suddenly, the praise for your work ethic was silenced, and the glowing reviews of workplace performance disappeared. Failure to advance within your company led you to believe your career stalled due to workplace retaliation rather than poor performance.
It is at this point that dedicated employees in your position contact me for advice about their workplace conflict. As an employment attorney, I have been representing employees throughout Wisconsin for over 20 years. I have counseled individuals like you who have told the truth about an event at work and have been punished for being honest.
Representing Employees Suffering Illegal Career Setbacks
While it is true that an employer can fire, demote or fail to promote an employee for many reasons, employees are protected from workplace retaliation for reasons, such as:
- Reporting an unlawful behavior
- Cooperating in an investigation about an illegal act
Drawing upon my extensive trial experience in this field of law, I have a history of success in litigating wrongful termination or retaliation claims in these matters and others, including:
- Hostile work environment
- Breach of contract
Other factors may limit your career prospects at work. I defend my clients’ interests when this discrimination has led to retaliation:
- Age, race, gender, religion, disability or reverse discrimination
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) retaliation
You may be hesitant to contact a lawyer to develop a legal strategy for wrongful termination; however, your career should not suffer due to an employer’s illegal action. I can help you protect your position, seek compensation or work to achieve a satisfactory resolution.
