Did Your Employer Retaliate Against You for Doing the Right Thing?
When something is wrong at the workplace, it should be okay to speak up. Yet, you spoke up and now you face a serious employment problem. Perhaps your employer decided to terminate you for your actions. Perhaps you were denied an opportunity you rightfully deserved. No matter what happened, if your employer acted in retaliation, it acted unlawfully.
Federal and state laws protect employees from retaliation when they speak up about employment discrimination, sexual harassment or other negative employment practices. It also protects whistleblowers (employees who expose an employer’s unlawful activity) and injured employees who request workers’ compensation.
No matter what type of retaliation you face, the Boulder employer retaliation lawyers at St.Clair & Greschler, P.C are on your side. We have more than 20 years of experience protecting employee rights and bringing claims against employers who act unlawfully.

- Bringing a workplace harassment claim, such as a sexual harassment claim, against another individual at your place of employment
