Experienced Employer Retaliation Lawyers Help Employees In Orlando And Central Florida
Most employees believe that employment retaliation occurs when they are terminated from their employment for no reason. This may be true, but it is only part of the story. Employment retaliation occurs when a "tangible employment action" is taken against someone in a "protected class."
A tangible employment action has been defined as a material change in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. Tangible employment action has also been defined as submission to unwelcomed advances when they have become an express or implied condition for receiving a job benefit or avoiding a job determinant. Some examples of tangible employment actions are: hiring, firing, demotion, failure to promote, change in pay, reassignment with significantly different responsibilities, and a decision causing significant change in employment benefits.
Protected classes can arise from a constitutional provision, a statutory provision, county ordinance or contractual provision. Some examples of protected classes are an individual's race, color, religion, sex, gender, national origin, marital status, disability, or handicap. There are many more protected classes. Furthermore, many employment-based statutes have anti-retaliation provisions that protected employees who seek to enforce their rights by complaining.
If an employer has taken a tangible employment action against you and you are someone in a protected class, you may be entitled to damages. Such damages can include back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, pain and suffering damages, punitive damages, and attorney fees and costs.

Mr. Adams represented me in an employment law matter where the Nasdaq 100 company I worked for terminated my employment in retaliation for reporting an HR incident on three different unprofessional managers and after I was subpoenaed as a witness in a nationwide trial. Although my former employer was creative in how they timed and documented their events, they forgot one thing, their overtime practices were illegal. Mr. Adams chose a strategic approach and was able to recover a substantial amount of funds that my employer failed to pay. If your company is not willing to do the right thing, Mr. Adams will make sure they eventually do. Don't try to go it alone against your company if they are bullying you and do not chose one of the big name firms where you are a number. I had been to 2 lawyers, one said just forget it and move on with my life, the second wanted $15,000 upfront. Mr. Adams took the case on a contingent basis. Mr. Adams has a relationship with many attorneys in the area and does not have to bully his way through the system. He is extremely professional and I would highly recommend him for your legal matter. Mr. Adams truly cares about your case and will take care of you. His paralegal Judy is also extremely diligent and helpful. Judy also cares about your case and will spend that extra two hours after work if need be to get the facts straight or to take care of a pending issue. Mr. Adams and Judy are a force to be reckoned with. Together with Mr. Labar and the rest of the staff... they are my DREAM TEAM!
