Retaliation in the workplace may warrant legal action in Texas

Going through a difficult time can affect various areas of a person's life. If the situation becomes too overwhelming, it may even impact the individual's ability to work. However, certain protections may help parties get the help they need without suffering negative outcomes from their employers. Unfortunately, some workers may face retaliation anyway and have to determine the best manner in which to address their new difficulties.

Texas residents may be interested in one out-of-state woman's case due to her facing similar circumstances. Reports indicated that the woman was a victim of a nonconsensual sexual encounter that occurred with a co-worker. Though the incident took place after work hours, she reported the incident to her superior. Later, the woman had an emotional incident at work and was told to seek help or leave her job.

The woman left work for several days in order to receive help dealing with her trauma, but days after returning to work, she was fired from her job. She believes that the termination was retaliatory for her reporting of the incident with her co-worker. As a result, she has filed a lawsuit in hopes gaining compensation for lost wages and other damages.

Retaliation in the workplace can come in many forms, and if individuals believe that they have been seriously mistreated at work for an unjust reason, they may wish to determine what courses of action could suit their circumstances. If employers or supervisors violated employees' rights, there may be cause for legal action. Concerned Texas residents may wish to speak with experienced attorneys to find out whether their situations may warrant such action.
