If you are struggling with an uncomfortable situation on the job as a result of retaliation, or if you have been discriminated against by your employer, you have the right to defend and protect your rights.
A Few Common Situations Where Employment Retaliation May Arise Include an Employee:

Workplace discrimination can take on different forms, some more subtle than others. Gender discrimination is one of the most common forms, but age discrimination and race discrimination are also quite prevalent.

Employer Defense Against Discrimination and Retaliation Allegations
If you are an employer facing allegations of discrimination and/or retaliation, you have the right to a fair defense. There are several defenses you can take as an employer against discrimination and/or retaliation allegations. For example, an employee actually being able to prove causation is difficult, and though an employee can’t be fired for complaining or acting against discrimination, he or she can still be terminated for poor job performance. If you believe you are being falsely accused of discrimination and/or retaliation against an employee, it is in your best interests to contact a skilled discrimination and retaliation attorney immediately.
