What Is Retaliation?
Retaliation is an unfavorable action taken by employers in response to their employee’s complaints about labor law violations. The West Virginia Legislature says that employees are entitled to be free from wrongful discharge, unlawful discrimination, and unlawful retaliation in their place of work. This includes retaliating against sexual harassment, whistleblower retaliation, or retaliation for reporting any other violation or abusive behavior to your employer or another authority.
Retaliation comes in many forms, including:
- Creating more difficult assignments
- Cutting hours
- Demanding increased production
- Denial of previously enjoyed benefits or privileges
- Increased critical supervision
- Retaliatory discharge
Each case is unique, but whenever you suspect you are being treated in an unkind and unfair way after taking action against your employer, you need to hire a Charleston employment lawyer. Retaliation is illegal and should be dealt with in court.
Proving Your Case
As your legal counsel, we will do all that we can to tell your story in a clear and compelling manner and demand appropriate action. We can only prove retaliation if it is clear that you engaged in a protected activity and your employer took action against you. We also must establish that there is a clear relation between your actions and the consequences dealt by your employer. Our employment law attorneys will be your guides, protectors, and warriors while we navigate the legal system to achieve your goals.
