Wage & Overtime

Retaliation

Outten & Golden attorneys bring retaliation claims against employers who punish employees for participating in efforts to secure wage rights for themselves and others. Wage and hour laws provide protection for current and former employees who come forward to complain about unlawful conduct in the workplace because the law recognizes how critically important it is for employees to bear witness to and combat unlawful conduct. Outten & Golden attorneys have successfully prosecuted retaliation claims for significant damages to vindicate workers who have faced unlawful retaliatory conduct, such as black-listing for future employment; undeserved negative employment references; and job demotion.*
