What Should You Do if You Believe an Employer Violated Your Rights as a Union Worker In Clearwater, FL?
Many workers feel they have no alternative but to accept whatever conditions and actions their employers take. However, as a union worker, you have the right to have your case heard by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Our attorneys represent union workers in cases before the NLRB to hold companies that violate regulations accountable for their conduct.
Talk with our lawyers if you have been discriminated against because you want to join a union or form a union. State and federal laws protect workers against this type of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Union-related matters fall under a very specific area of law. Our lawyers have the experience to help you with a wide variety of issues.
The first step is to contact our office to speak with a lawyer. The sooner you obtain legal advice, the better for your case.
What Rights Do Union Workers Have in Clearwater, Florida?
You have rights that we can help you protect. For example, employers cannot threaten you with job and benefit termination if you join a union or engage in protected activity. They cannot promise benefits as an incentive to discourage you from joining a union. Your employer cannot lay you off, transfer you, assign you more difficult tasks, or take other actions to “punish” you for exercising your rights, including filing an unfair labor practice action.
Likewise, we represent union workers when the union violates their rights. A labor organization cannot threaten you to make you join the union. They cannot refuse to process a grievance. Unions cannot require you to pay union dues or fees that are unlawful.
Our lawyers fight to protect union workers from all activity that violates their rights, regardless of which side of the line the conduct originates.
