Missouri Employment Law Attorneys

Unlawful Retaliation

Obtain Employment Law Representation in Missouri & Illinois

Riggan Law Firm represents individuals who have been unlawfully retaliated against for engaging in conduct protected by federal or state discrimination laws.

An employer may not retaliate against an individual for opposing unlawful discrimination based on any protected category, such as age, disability, gender, national origin, pregnancy, race, or religion.

Furthermore, an employee cannot be retaliated against or penalized for filing a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or an equivalent state agency, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or litigation under federal or state discrimination laws. Likewise, an employee cannot be retaliated against for complaining about or reporting violations of federal or state wage and hour laws.

Do you feel that you have been the victim of unlawful retaliation? If so, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the wrongs that were done to you during your employment or before the employment had a chance to take place. An unlawful termination, for example, may include any situation in which an employer lets an employee go because of something that may be considered discriminatory, such as harassment on sexual terms, racial or religious discrimination, pregnancy discrimination and age discrimination.

If your rights have been violated in any manner or you are questioning an action that an employer or potential employer took against you, do not hesitate to contact Riggan Law Firm as soon as possible to retain trusted legal counsel.
