Minneapolis Workplace Retaliation Lawyers
Employers have the right to terminate employees with or without cause as the employment relationship is considered “at-will”. However, employers are not permitted to terminate an employee in retaliation for an employee reporting instances of discrimination or harassment, reporting an injury or acting as a whistleblower.
At Neaton & Puklich P.L.L.P. in Minneapolis, we represent employees in the Twin Cities metro and surrounding areas who have been retaliated against by their employers. If you believe you have lost your job as retaliation we can help you identify the viability of your claim and pursue your rights.
Protecting the Rights of Employees in the Workplace
Employers are often able to use their ultimate power — the power to terminate employment or institute a demotion or pay reduction — to intimidate employees from making claims or retaliate against employees who:
- Make an FMLA claim
- Seek workers’ compensation
- Report sexual harassment
- Make a discrimination claim
- Take maternity leave or become pregnant
We are fully prepared to take every case to its rightful conclusion in our pursuit of the best possible option for our client. If a case should go to trial, we will take it to trial. If we consider it in our clients’ interest to recommend settlement, we will do so. At every stage of the process, we work with our clients to identify their interests and evaluate the costs, benefits and risks of any potential action.
