Unlawful Workplace Retaliation Overview

Larry Disparti and the attorneys at the Disparti Law Firm go to bat for victims of Unlawful Workplace Retaliation.

Unlawful Workplace RetaliationHas your employer retaliated against you?  Were you wrongfully terminated from your job because you spoke up about illegal or unethical behavior you witnessed?  Were you denied a raise or demoted because you filed a discrimination complaint in your workplace?  If so, you may be a victim of unlawful retaliation by your employer.  It’s your right to speak up, you cannot be punished for it.


Employers retaliate against employees for a number of reasons.  Whether it’s for reporting sexual harassment or for pursuing workers compensation, when retaliation occurs – employees feel pressure to remain silent or face serious repercussions.  This is wrong.  If it happens to you, you need to contact an Unlawful Retaliation Lawyer or Workplace Retaliation Attorney at the Disparti Law Group right away.



You may be entitled to compensation if you are a victim of retaliation.  It is unlawful to retaliate against applicants or employees for:

  • filing or being a witness in an EEO charge, complaint, investigation, or lawsuit
  • communicating with a supervisor or manager about employment discrimination, including harassment
  • answering questions during an employer investigation of alleged harassment
  • refusing to follow orders that would result in discrimination
  • resisting sexual advances, or intervening to protect others
  • requesting accommodation of a disability or for a religious practice
  • asking managers or co-workers about salary information to uncover potentially discriminatory wages

Retaliation cases often can be easier to prove in court than employment discrimination claims.
