Miami Unlawful Retaliation Attorney
Claims of retaliation and wrongful termination are common and, in many circumstances, avoidable. Unlawful retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse actions against an employee who opposes discrimination in the workplace, opposes a direction to break the law, files a complaint to a state or federal agency or commission about discrimination, or participates in an investigation. “Adverse actions” may include demotion, termination, reduction in pay or changes in working conditions, or other actions that would deter a reasonable employee from complaining about discrimination.

Depending on the facts of the case, we protect the rights of employees who are asserting their statutorily protected rights.

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 discrimination or harassment complaint that you have made or filed, you should contact Penichet Law immediately. The law prohibits retaliation against employees 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).
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, may appear to be retaliation and therefore may become grounds for potential litigation.
