Protecting Against Retaliation in the Federal Workplace

Houston Federal Employee Lawyer Serving Clients Nationwide

It is illegal for employers to retaliate against an employee for acting within their rights when it comes to speaking up about discriminatory practices. Unfortunately, that occasionally offers little protection when it comes to an offended employer. If you feel you were punished because you complained, either formally or informally, about discrimination in the workplace, contact our federal employee lawyers at The Law Offices of Eric L. Pines, PLLC. We can evaluate your case and honestly advise you as to the best way to proceed with protecting your rights.

Case evaluations can be scheduled by contacting us.

We Handle Cases Nationwide

Retaliation happens in federal operations nationwide. Wherever you are in the country, we make ourselves accessible to you, so that you can make strides toward the best possible results for this unfortunate situation.

We know it can be difficult emotionally and professionally to pursue action against an employer who has already punished you for filing a complaint. Our job as your federal employee attorney is to counsel you as to the best way to proceed, as well as help prevent any further rights violations from occurring.

Damages sought in retaliation complaints often include:

  • Lost wages due to missed work.
  • Recovery of a job from which you may have been fired.
  • Compensation for the emotional distress of this tense situation.
  • Recovery of benefits denied to you as a result of your complaint.

Don't Let Fear Rule Your Workplace

You are legally allowed to speak up when you feel something is wrong in your federal workplace. Our Houston attorneys exclusively represent federal employees in retaliation cases, enabling us to offer knowledgeable counsel regarding your particular federal employment situation. This comes in handy when navigating the complex laws surrounding the federal workplace, especially when it comes to "whistleblowers", or individuals who have voiced their legal right to protest discrimination.
