Were You Wrongly Fired Or Retaliated Against?
Most employees are reluctant to make waves specifically because of the fear of backlash. Some employers take advantage of this, keeping workers under their thumb with threats and following through to retaliate against those who do cry foul.
The Womack Law Firm levels the playing field. We stand up for workers who have suffered harassment, termination or other reprisals for blowing the whistle on wrongdoing or asserting their rights. Our Houston employment litigation practice handles lawsuits for retaliation and wrongful termination in Harris County and throughout Texas.
If you believe you were retaliated against by your employer, contact us today to discuss your rights and options.
Making Things Right For Victims Of Employment Retaliation
Experienced trial lawyer Mark T. Womack is widely recognized in Houston and beyond for his results in civil litigation and his knowledge of federal and state employment law. He is attuned to the tactics — sometimes overt and heavy-handed, but often subtle and sneaky — that employers use to punish employees.
Workplace retaliation takes many forms, including demotion or transfer, punitive assignments or exclusion, harassment or micromanagement, physical assault or intimidation, pay deductions, negative job reviews, and wrongful termination.
We hold employers accountable for adverse actions stemming from:
- Whistleblowing on an employer’s fraud or illegal activity
- Refusing to engage in unlawful conduct
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Taking pregnancy leave or leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Reporting sexual harassment or other discrimination
In many cases, employers will delay action to hide their motives or fabricate reasons to fire a worker summarily. Mr. Womack is skilled at cutting through these schemes to reveal the retaliatory nature of adverse actions. He has obtained notable recoveries, through settlements and verdicts, to compensate clients for the emotional distress, lost earnings, stalled career and/or damage to reputation.
