Standing up for yourself and protecting your rights as an employee is easier said than done. If your employer has taken action against you after you took any kind of action against them, do not be afraid to fight back. At the law offices of Favaro & Gorman, our Palatine workplace retaliation attorneys protect the rights of workers who have been the victim of wrongful termination or employment retaliation.
When You Stand Up for Yourself, You Stand Up for all Employees
While there are strict laws protecting the rights of all workers, many companies still think they can get away with taking action against an employee who has opposed a discriminatory practice or reported them for an illegal activity. Many people are the victims of retaliatory discharge, getting fired for standing up for their rights.
You do not have to be fired to be the victim of retaliation. If your employer has taken some other kind of action against you, we can evaluate your case and help you determine if you have a common law claim. We protect the rights of people who have been the victims of retaliation for a wide range of reasons, including:
- Filing workers' compensation claim
- Reporting sexual harassment
- Reporting illegal conduct by the company
- Reporting crimes
As one of the largest firms in northern Illinois dedicated to protecting the rights of employees, we can help you take action if you have been fired unfairly. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you through this difficult time. Contact our Palatine law offices today to schedule a consultation and learn more.
