Protecting Workers From Retaliatory Termination
You have the legal right to report wrongdoing or unsafe conditions at the workplace without the fear of retaliation. Unfortunately, employers often retaliate against workers for speaking out in any case. In some instances, these companies make the workplace intolerable for the worker. In other instances, they terminate workers from their place of employment and deprive them of benefits.
The attorneys at The Gori Law Firm, in Edwardsville, protect the rights of whistleblowers. Due to our understanding of laws, we know how to hold employers accountable for retaliatory termination. We can negotiate for a settlement that will compensate the employee for wrongful removal. When necessary, we can litigate your matter in court by bringing a retaliation lawsuit.
