Retaliation Lawyer in Tyler

Representing Employees in Disputes with Their Present & Former Employers

Most people in the workplace strive to be ethical and honest in their interactions. However, seeing illegal behavior and reporting it, especially if it is committed by a supervisor or an employer, can be a challenging decision to make. It takes a lot of courage to take a stand for what you know to be right, especially since those in charge could attempt to retaliate and make you suffer for reporting the incident.

I have discovered that wrongful retaliation against justified reporting has only been increasing lately, which is why the Hommel Law Firm is ready to defend you. You did the right thing in reporting a crime, and you should not have to face the consequences of discrimination, retaliation, or even termination for your boldness. Let a retaliation lawyer in Tyler defend you and get the most optimal solution.

Categories of Unlawful Retaliation

There are multiple categories where an employer cannot retaliate against an employee. It is important to be aware of all of these categories, because if any of these situations apply to you, it can become much easier for your case to be successful in court.

According to both federal and state laws in Texas, no employer is able to simply terminate, discharge, or retaliate in any other fashion if an employee has been:

  • Complaining about or reporting policies or conditions around the workplace
  • In the process of filing an EEOC charge of discrimination, or involved in a related investigation
  • In participation of a Texas Workforce Commission charge of discrimination, or involved in a related investigation
  • Seeking a reasonable and logical support of a type of accommodation on account of any mental or physical disability or illness
  • Reporting evidence of wrongful discrimination or illegal harassment to a supervisor or employer
  • Participating in an investigation regarding an employer or colleague’s behavior of discrimination or sexual harassment
  • Giving information or testimony regarding illegal behavior witnessed at the workplace
  • Making a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor about not receiving overtime pay from your employer
  • Complaining to your employer that you have not received your rightful amount of pay for overtime work
  • Receiving an injury in the workplace that then is covered by benefits from Workers Compensation
  • Either making a claim for or actually receiving benefits which have been covered from Workers Compensation
  • Filing a claim for individual bankruptcy
