If you complained about unfairness in the workplace and you've been demoted or denied a promotion, you may have been subject to retaliation. An employer that punishes an employee for taking a legally protected action (like complaining about discrimination) is breaking the law. If you've experienced retaliation, whether you've been fired or the conditions of your employment have changed for the worse, you need the help of an employment lawyer who understands how to build a case for retaliation.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
