Retaliation

Miami, Florida, Retaliation Law Firm

After an initial complaint alleging discrimination, sexual harassment or another type of illegal employment behavior in the workplace, any action that potentially impacts the individual making the allegation must be carefully considered. If an individual is subsequently terminated, demoted or given lower pay or lesser job duties, the action may be construed as retaliation for making the initial complaint. If you are an employee or employer facing a situation involving suspected retaliation, we at the office of Paul F. Penichet, P.A. can help.

To learn more about your options when dealing with possible workplace retaliation, contact a lawyer at our firm at 305-330-1459. We speak Spanish. Se habla Espanol.

At the law firm of Paul F. Penichet, P.A., our firm provides aggressive representation to individuals and businesses involved in a wide range of employment law situations, including retaliation.

Employees

If you suspect that your termination, demotion, change in pay, change in job duties or the hostile treatment you receive from a superior is due to a complaint that you have made or filed, you should contact our firm at once. You cannot be retaliated against for engaging in protected activity, such as the reporting of discrimination or sexual harassment, requesting an accommodation for a disability or FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) or whistleblowing under the False Claims Act. We are experienced handling cases involving retaliation or a retaliatory discharge (wrongful termination).

Employers

After an employee has lodged a complaint, it is important that you protect your business by seeking assistance in dealing with the matter. Any action taken against that employee, even if it is seemingly minor and there is a legitimate business reason for it, it may appear to be retaliation and therefore may become grounds for potential litigation. You want to speak with our firm before taking any action against an employee who has made a complaint. We work to ensure decisions you make concerning employee matters are done properly to protect you from potential litigation.

If you have questions or concerns about a retaliation case or other employment law matter, contact us at 305-330-1459 to schedule an appointment with a knowledgeable attorney. We speak Spanish. Se habla Espanol.
