    Illegal retaliation usually refers to an adverse action, like a termination or demotion, taken in response to an employee complaining about or opposing unlawful workplace discrimination. It can also refer to retaliation for filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits for a workplace injury. While not all retaliation is unlawful, if you have complained about or opposed discrimination, or if you have been injured on the job and sought worker’s compensation benefits, and have then been retaliated against because of it, that is unlawful.


    An employer cannot discriminate against you because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. It is illegal for an employer to use any of these reasons to fire, demote, or refuse to hire you. If you have experienced discrimination at work, that is unlawful. Scott Gilmore Thompson can help.

    Harassment takes many forms. One of the more common types is sexual harassment, which is unwanted verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. But it is also unlawful to harass an employee because of any protected characteristic or trait, including age or disability. Harassment is never acceptable.

    Wage & Hour

    Federal law requires your employer to pay non-exempt employees a minimum hourly wage plus one and one-half times that rate for all hours worked over forty in a week. Many your employer do not understand these provisions, and many simply ignore them.
