Punished At Work For Pursuing Your Rights?
Although your boss makes the rules at work, he or she can’t change Florida laws or U.S. laws. You have certain rights. One of your rights is to file a workers’ compensation claim if you are injured on the job. Another right is to report illegal behavior by your boss or co-workers.
If your employer retaliates against you for exercising your legal rights, Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A., will stand up for you. Since our Lakeland firm was founded in 1968, we have established a respected reputation as aggressive litigators who are not afraid to go to court. We also have the resources to confront even the largest companies.
What It Takes To Win Your Case
In order to win an employment lawsuit that is based on a retaliation claim, you must show that:
- You were involved in a protected activity (such as filing a workers’ compensation claim or reporting discrimination)
- Because of that protected activity, you were treated unfairly (such as being demoted, harassed or fired)
Proving these two points is a job for a knowledgeable employment law attorney. With more than 125 years of combined experience, our team of lawyers has the detailed understanding necessary to accurately evaluate your case. Our firm also knows how to apply state and federal laws in order to protect your rights in the workplace. We will walk you through all the details step by step, and we won’t quit until you receive the justice you deserve.
