Holding Employers Accountable For Retaliation

We are taught from a young age that if we do the right thing, we will be rewarded. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case in the workplace. Very often, an employee who suffers unlawful discrimination or harassment in the workplace is faced with a tough decision: report the illegal and discriminatory acts of his or her employer, or sit silently and endure the discrimination or harassment.

What many people do not know is that there are a number of powerful laws that protect employees from retaliation. To find out more, contact The Galo Law Firm P.C., in San Antonio. Call 866-882-3409 to speak to an attorney about retaliation in the workplace.
