Disagreements arise in the workplace all the time. In most cases, those disputes are resolved relatively easily without any harm coming to the parties involved. Sometimes, though, employers retaliate against employees for actions they disagree with, even when those actions are legally protected. This retaliation can cost you your job and your career. It’s also illegal.
Proving your retaliation case
If you think that you’ve been affected by retaliation, then you need to consider taking legal action. To succeed on a claim, though, you’ll need to gather and present compelling evidence that supports your case. How do you do this? There are a number of ways. First, if you’re making a complaint of discrimination, harassment, or some sort of regulation violation, then you need to document your communication with your employer. Keep emails and write down everything that happens, including how your work environment changes after making your complaint. You’ll also want to gather everything pertaining to your employment record so that you can show any stark contrasts in how you’re treated after lodging your complaint.
Why legal help matters
Very rarely does an employer explicitly state that they are taking an employment action because an employee took a certain legal action. This means that most of these retaliation cases are built on circumstantial evidence. An attorney who knows this area of the law well can help you not only gather and present the best evidence possible, but they can also help you connect the dots for a judge and jury.
