Boca Raton Attorney For Workplace Retaliation

Did Your Employer Try To Make You Into A Cautionary Tale?

If you have been demoted, have received discipline at work, or have even been fired for asserting a right that is protected by state or federal laws, that is considered retaliation and you may have a viable employment law claim against your employer. When employers make an example out of an employee, it is illegal and that employee is able to pursue compensation for damages caused by retaliation.

At the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., we have significant experience with retaliation claims in the workplace. We can thoroughly investigate your circumstances to determine whether it would be in your best interest to file a claim. In Boca Raton and throughout the state of Florida, lawyer William Julien has more than 20 years of employment law experience dealing with retaliation in its various forms.

What Does Retaliation Look Like?

Examples of illegal employer retaliation may include termination, demotion or harassment that comes out of:

  • Filing a workers' compensation claim
  • Reporting fraudulent practices to appropriate agencies
  • Complaining about sexual harassment
  • Reporting discrimination in the workplace
  • Taking leave for paternity or family member illness as protected under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Complaining about wage and hour issues

It is important to understand that while wrongful termination is often a form of retaliation, you do not have to be fired in order for retaliation to have occurred. If you were demoted from a current position; given fewer hours; not giving a scheduled raise or bonus; or were openly harassed, these can all be forms of retaliation on the job.
