Retaliation - Employee Legal Rights

San Jose, Bay Area Workplace Retaliation Lawyer

Federal and state laws prohibit employers from retaliation against employees who have filed legitimate claims against their employers. Retaliation against victims of discrimination and harassment who have spoken out and reported such behavior is all too common in today’s society. This even occurs when an employee is not themselves a victim of harassment, but is trying to help another employee by protesting harassment.

At the Law Offices of Rutger Heymann in San Jose, California, I focus on the protection of employees' rights. I tackle employer retaliation cases promptly and aggressively. My experience with employment retaliation claims enables me to get the facts that demonstrate the true reasons why an employer retaliated against you. Call my San Jose office today to schedule a confidential consultation and learn about your options.

Whatever your unique situation may be, I  have the legal experience, and in-depth knowledge of the employment laws, and the practical skills to handle retaliation cases involving matters of:


Take Action to Prevent Damage to Your Career and Livelihood

If your employer has retaliated against you for exercising the rights and benefits given to you by the law, you should take immediate action to prevent further damage to your job status and personal reputation. If your employer has fired you for speaking out, a skilled workplace retaliation lawyer can explain your rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or other protective laws and protect your rights against wrongful termination.
