Many of our clients fear their employers retaliating against them, and we protect our clients from that, too. Our clients frequently
ask us questions like these:
- Can my employer ﬁre me if I sue? What if I lost the lawsuit?
- Can my employer ﬁre me if I ﬁled a claim with the Labor Board? What if I lost?
- Can my employer ﬁre me if I said I was discriminated against? What if I lost?
- Can my employer ﬁre me for making a union grievance?
- Can my employer ﬁre me for being a witness in someone else's claim?
- Can my employer ﬁre me for making a claim to worker's compensation? What if my claim was denied, can they ﬁre me then?
- Can my employer ﬁre me because I told someone in the state or the government about something I thought was illegal? What
if I was wrong?
- Can I get ﬁred for taking family or medical leave?
- Can my employer ﬁre me for complaining about harassment?
- I did one of the things described above, but I wasn't ﬁred — just had my hours cut, my pay cut, I got a bad reassignment,
missed a raise or promotion, or my employer is just plain making my life really difcult because of what I did. Is that okay,
even though I haven't been ﬁred?
- I really did screw up at work afer standing up for myself; am I out of luck?
