Parkersburg Workplace Retaliation Attorney
Taking Action Against Unlawful Retaliation by Employers
When you feel you’ve been wronged at work, you should be free to file a formal complaint without fear. The resulting investigation may reveal nothing, or it may indicate inappropriate behavior. Either way, you should not be punished for speaking up. If your management takes revenge on you, you are the victim of workplace retaliation.
Retaliation in the workplace is illegal, and you can receive compensation if it happens to you. Bailess Law Firm PLLC has over 10 years of experience helping clients who’ve been wrongfully targeted for voicing their concerns. We can help you get the justice you deserve.
Forms of Workplace Retaliation
Retaliation can look different for each person and each scenario. It all depends on the circumstances surrounding your case. Our team can evaluate your situation, and if we see evidence of retaliation, we can act on your behalf.
Retaliation can include:
- Promotion denial
- Open, overt harassment
- A sudden loss of benefits
- Demotion or a cut in pay
- A sudden change to an undesirable shift

Damages You Could Receive from a Workplace Retaliation Claim
If you lost work or wages from retaliation, you could have that lost income restored. Retaliation often causes mental distress, which may result in medical or therapy bills. You can have these expenses repaid, and you may also be eligible for pain and suffering damages. Since retaliation is an egregious offense, a courtroom could also award you punitive damages.
Most companies wish to avoid all these expenses, and they prefer to handle retaliation cases outside of court. Our team can negotiate a fair settlement that covers your needs. When an employer refuses to do the right thing, we are prepared to take the matter to a courtroom.
