Worker Retaliation Lawyer | Protecting Workers’ Rights in Providence, Rhode Island
When someone reports an injustice, they should not be penalized for doing so. Unfortunately, this is something that happens quite often in the workplace, and if you believe that you were retaliated against for reporting discrimination in the workplace, you need an experienced Providence County, Rhode Island employment lawyer on your side. Our firm has handled countless retaliation claims over the years, and we are ready to do the same for you.
Federal Protections from Retaliation
The first thing you should understand is that workers are protected from retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Essentially, Title VII states that employers cannot discriminate against employees based on any protected class, such as gender or race. That being said, when someone notices discrimination of any kind and he or she reports that discrimination, that employee is also exempt from retaliation from his or her employer.
Unfortunately, employers often do lash out at employees who seek to report wrongdoing within a company, and if you are someone who was recently retaliated against, you are most likely very worried about your future either in your current company or your job prospects down the line.
Our goal is to help ensure that the act of retaliation is brought to light and that any forms of retaliation you faced as a result of your reporting wrongdoing are corrected. For example, if we can prove that you were wrongfully demoted, harassed, or your position was wrongfully terminated at your place of employment, there is a very good chance that we will have a valid retaliation claim.
