Rocke Law Fights for the financial rights of employees who have been wronged by their employer
Will I get Fired if I file an Employment Law Compliant against my boss?
A lot of times employees who are being victimized at work are too afraid to speak up. Fear of being fired, not believed, or “black-listed” from the industry sometimes stops employees from sticking up for themselves. We SAY SPEAK UP. The State of Washington has specific laws that protect employees and their rights to file complaints without being fired. It is illegal for your employer to terminate you for filing a workplace violation complaint, or to file a lawsuit alleging harassment, discrimination, or wrongdoings.
What Questions Should I ask an Employment Law Attorney?
Making the decision to contact an employment law attorney typically means you’re ready to sue your employer. If you’ve been sexually harassed or discriminated against, your emotions may be high. Rightfully so, you’ve been wronged within the workplace, and you’re pissed off and upset. A lot of time people have lots of questions and things they want to know. However, once they get in front of an attorney, they forget some of the questions and concerns they wanted answers about.
This is why Rocke Law recommends that prior to coming into our office for your consultation to write down all of your questions. When you meet with our Seattle Employment Law Attorneys you will want to get as much information as you can. Questions about how litigation works, the steps to filing a law suit, and financially driven questions are always topics that come up.
Rocke Law encourages you to speak up and to defend your rights as an employee. Below are some additional things you may want to consider if you’ve been wronged within the workplace.
Was anyone else at work also harassed or wronged?
Too often if an employer is brash enough to harass or mistreat you, they’re doing it to other employees as well. There can be strength in numbers, and sometimes we can file class action lawsuits. Think if anyone else at work has been wronged like you have. If so, bring this to our attention during your consultation.
When did the harassment or wrongdoings start?
The more details and information you can provide us, the better we can advise you of our legal opinions. Try to write down when the abuse, harassment, or wrongdoings started. Also, if you can back track and right down some dates of specific events that can also be helpful information for us when we meet in person.
Do Any Other Managers Know About What’s Going on?
Sometimes it’s not the company who is at fault but instead a rogue manager or supervisors. However, sometimes other managers know what’s going on but they turn a blind eye and ignore a wrongdoing. This may make them copiable and also wrong. We want to know about things like this, so try and remember if anyone else in management is aware of the issues you’re experiencing.
