Fighting to recover for reputational damage caused by employer defamation
Comments from vindictive former employers can harm you even years after you’ve stopped working for them. You might be entitled to a recovery if a current or former employer knowingly or recklessly makes a false, damaging statement about you to a third party. If you believe that this might have happened to you, it is essential to contact a knowledgeable attorney to explain your rights under Nevada law. Thater Law Group, P.C. can assess your chance of success should you choose to file a defamation lawsuit.
A skilled wrongful termination litigator for those fired unjustly
Thater Law Group aggressively pursues compensation for individuals fired for improper reasons. Though many Nevada workers are at-will employees, companies are still prohibited from breaching employment contracts and firing people for certain reasons. Employers who violate contractual rights and statutory protections must be held to account. We can help if you think you’ve been fired for the wrong reason, including:
- Discriminatory action — If you believe your dismissal was due in part to any type of discrimination, Thater Law Group can help you determine whether you might benefit from filing a lawsuit or an action with the Nevada Equal Rights Commission.
- Reporting workplace violations — Employers are prohibited from retaliating against individuals who report violations of compensation and leave rules or safety breaches in their place of work.
- Military leave — Federal law states that employees can take up to five years of leave for military service and cannot be discharged from their job. Nevada extends this protection to include time off for training, ceremonies and service in the state’s National Guard.
If any of these situations sound familiar, or if you’ve been wrongfully terminated for other reasons, such as claiming sexual harassment, time might be running out on your potential claim. Thater Law Group can help ensure that you do not lose what is properly yours.
Whistleblower retaliation claims if you’re punished for citing employer fraud
If you’re aware that your employer is defrauding the state or federal government, whistleblower laws allow you to sue on the government’s behalf and to retain a share of any recovery. Despite this potentially lucrative “finder’s fee,” many employees are hesitant to bring such an action out of fear of retaliation. Both Nevada and federal laws impose strict sanctions against firms that punish workers who report employer misconduct to authorities. If you’ve been fired or punished after noting employer misdeeds, we can show you how you might be able to collect damages under the relevant false claims acts.
