Facing Retaliation? Call Our Orlando Overtime Attorneys.
Employer retaliation against an employee who files or testifies about an unpaid wage claim is strictly forbidden by both federal and state law. Employers may not demote, reduce an employee’s hours, assign an employee an undesirable shift, reduce job duties, or give intentionally false poor performance reviews when a claim is filed.

What Is Considered Retaliation?
Up to 80% of workers are entitled to receive overtime pay. You have every right to file a claim if you qualify and have been denied fair overtime wages. If an employer does retaliate against you, they can be held civilly and criminally responsible for such unlawful actions.
Some examples of employer retaliation include:
- Withholding wages
- Firing the employee for no reason
- Refusing an expected raise
- Placing the employee on undesired shifts
- Giving the worker undesired or lesser job duties
- Giving negative performance reviews
- Irrationally disciplining an employee
