Retaliation/Whistleblower Claims

Pittsburgh Workplace Retaliation Attorneys

Many people will not complain about sexual harassment, discrimination, or other mistreatment in the workplace because they are afraid their employer will punish them. While this does happen, you should know that you can file a claim against your employer for retaliation. The Pittsburgh workplace retaliation lawyers of Logan & Logan in are very experienced in handling these types of claims, along with claims brought by whistleblowers for adverse actions taken against them.

Handling All Types of Retaliation and Whistleblower Claims

Employee retaliation can take many forms. Our Pennsylvania employment law attorneys will listen closely to your side of the story to determine whether you have a valid claim. Examples of adverse actions on the part of employers include:

  • A woman feels that she has been sexually harassed at work and complains about it to Human Resources. Right afterwards, she is given a desk in a room, doing nothing.
  • A man in his 50s complains about younger employees being treated more favorably at work. The man is immediately demoted by his employer.
  • A man is injured at work and files a workers' compensation claim. The employer fires the employee.

State and federal laws prevent your employer from retaliating against you for filing a legal claim through whistleblower protections. The law will also protect you from adverse actions for complaining about something that is a recognized legal right. The attorneys at Logan & Logan are well-versed in Pennsylvania Whistleblower Law, as well as Federal Whistleblower Law and the Allegheny County Whistleblower Law. If your employer does take adverse action against you, the courts are open to hearing your claim. At the Pittsburgh law firm of Logan & Logan, our lawyers will help you assert your protected rights.

Ensuring That You Have the Strongest Claim Available

A claim against your employer alleging illegal retaliation may be even stronger than your underlying claim. For example, even if you do not have a strong case for sexual harassment or age discrimination, you may have a strong claim for retaliation if your employer takes any adverse action against you for filing a complaint or opposing discrimination. Our attorneys will work hard to ensure that your claim is made as strong as possible in order to hold your employer accountable.
