Central Florida Retaliation Protection Attorneys

Orlando Employer Retaliation Lawyer – Workplace Retaliation Legal Services in Orlando and Central Florida

The anti-retaliation provisions under the law typically make it unlawful to retaliate against an individual because he or she has opposed any practice made unlawful under the employment discrimination statutes or reported in good faith a perceived occurrence of an unlawful act under an employment discrimination statute. This protection generally applies if an individual explicitly or implicitly communicates to his or her employer or other covered entity a belief that its activity constitutes a form of employment discrimination.

In laymen’s terms, an employer may not retaliate in any way in response to complaints made to it or made to the proper government agencies, or in response to any legal claim which is filed by the employee as a result of workplace actions or conditions.

Common Forms of Employer Retaliation

  • There are many ways to retaliate against an employee. While some are very blatant, others are designed to frustrate the employee or force them to resign. Workplace retaliation often takes the form of:
    • Sudden reduction in the workers hours;
    • A demotion of the employee;
    • Termination or Discharge of the Employee;
    • Reduction in pay;
    • An employee being re-assigned to a department which the employee is unfamiliar, essentially setting them up to fail, making their termination viable;
    • Sudden poor performance reviews, following a history of positive and productive performance reviews;
    • Denying an employee the proper resources, which were previously available, to properly perform their job duties at a level of expectation or time constraints;
    • Exclusion from advancement or pay increases as others less qualified, experienced, or in seniority are advanced or given pay increases instead.
