Employers cannot take material adverse action against employees by firing, demoting, harassing, or otherwise retaliating against employees because the employee has filed a charge of discrimination, has complained to their employer about employment discrimination, or has participated in an employment discrimination proceeding. A plaintiff may prevail on a claim for retaliation even when the underlying conduct complained of was not in fact unlawful so long as he/she can establish that he/she possessed a good faith, reasonable belief that the underlying challenged actions of the employer violated the law.
If you have been retaliated against by your employer due to your opposition to employment discriminaiton and/or perceived employment discrimination, or due to your participation or perceived participation in an employment discrimination proceeding, please contact our Queens / NYC retaliation attorneys as soon as possible. If you believe you have been the victim of unlawful employment retaliation, please contact our Queens / NYC employment retaliation lawyers as soon as possible before your rights under the law expire.
Retaliation is unlawful not only under employment discrimination laws, but also under various overtime, minimum wage, whistleblower, medical leave, and other employment laws. In discrimination and retaliation lawsuits, an employee / plaintiff may lose his / her discrimination or other claim(s), yet prevail on their retaliation claim(s). Temporal proximity (the time between the protected activity and the adverse employment action) is often very important in retaliation claims. If you have suffered retaliation by your employer, please contact our Queens / NYC retaliation attorneys.
Statute of limitations apply, so please contact our Queens / NYC retaliation lawyers immediately if you believe your employer has engaged in unlawful retaliation against you.
