An Employment Law Firm Dedicated To Employees’ Rights
If you have been fired, demoted or transferred, had job responsibilities taken from you, or otherwise been punished at work for engaging in a legally protected activity, it’s important to seek professional legal guidance. With your livelihood on the line, don’t tackle the situation alone. Instead, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests and help you recover full and fair compensation for your losses. You want an attorney who fully understands what you have to prove and who has successfully helped others with claims based on retaliation in the workplace.
At the office of Stephanie Jane Hahn, Attorney at Law PC, in Indianapolis, we have focused our practice exclusively on employment law matters since 1995, including retaliation claims arising in the workplace. We do more than just litigate your case — we can help you obtain both economic and noneconomic goals, perhaps avoiding litigation altogether. We have successfully argued claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Indiana state courts, federal courts in both the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, Illinois. With her experience on the Indiana State Bar Association’s Employment and Labor Council, attorney Stephanie Jane Hahn has a thorough understanding of the changing legislation in employment law. She has held esteemed positions on the Executive Board of the council for the past three years, including secretary, treasurer and chair-elect.
Our Protection Of Workers In Retaliation Claims
We represent employees who have experienced adverse employment events such as demotion, a change of duties, the denial of a promotion or even wrongful termination or discharge as a result of engaging in activities that are protected under the law. We also represent individuals who have been punished on the job for engaging in a protected activity on behalf of someone else.
These activities can include:
- Complaining about discrimination within your company
- Making public activities by the company or company officials that violate the law or public policy (also known as whistleblower retaliation)
- Filing a lawsuit against your employer for violation of state or federal law, including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title VII
- Complaining about discrimination to a civil rights agency
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim for injuries on the job
- Filing a wage and hour claim for unpaid overtime or other compensation
- Reporting or complaining about harassment or discrimination of a co-worker
- Reporting or complaining about harassment or discrimination by a supervisor
To prove retaliation, you don’t need to prove discrimination. We will help you gather the evidence and prepare your case to show that you were engaging in a protected activity, that your employer knew about the protected activity and that you suffered an adverse employment event because of your participation in that activity.
