“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”— Martin Luther King, Jr.

You Have the Right to Stand Up for Your Rights

Employers know that it is illegal to retaliate against an employee for filing a discrimination complaint or reporting an illegal act under whistleblower laws. Unfortunately, employers also know how to make your life miserable if they no longer want you around. It’s called constructive discharge — trying to make you quit so they won’t have to fire you — and it is just as illegal as a wrongful termination.

If you think you are a victim of retaliation on your job, talk to an experienced employment law attorney at VKV right away. During your free consultation, we will listen to your case and clearly explain how the laws affect your situation. We will give you the knowledge you need to feel empowered to fight back and stand up for your rights.

“We are a comfortable, compassionate law firm. We listen to your concerns and understand how tough it is to call out your employer when you are suffering retaliation. The only way it is going to stop is to stand up for your rights. They want you to quit — don’t. Let us help you fight back.”

Have you experienced any of these subtle signs of retaliation?

  • Your workspace moved to an inappropriate part of the building
  • A transfer to another department out of your career path
  • Fewer invitations to department meetings
  • Reduced responsibilities or job tasks reassigned to other employees
  • Increased reprimands and corrective actions
  • A poor or mediocre annual review after years of positive reviews

You Do Not Deserve a Hostile Work Environment

VKV focuses on a simple legal philosophy: Employees who suffer retaliation, discrimination and other unfair workplace practices deserve the knowledge that gives them the power and courage to take action. Your employer may be big, but it is not above the law. Our retaliation and wrongful termination lawyers are experienced in the applicable areas of federal and New York state employment law. Retaliation is illegal. Let us help you fight back.

Under the law, it is illegal for an employer to take any retaliatory actions against an employee who reports illegal activities under whistleblower laws. If you are considering reporting illegal activities by your employer, or are suffering retaliation because of reporting an activity, talk to an experienced whistleblower attorney at VKV right away.

VKV employment law attorneys have extensive experience working with cases involving cheating on government contracts and fraudulent public accounting under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. We understand how difficult it is for a single employee to stand up against the power of a large corporation. VKV lawyers give you the knowledge and power to stand up and fight courageously against harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination.
