Have you been retaliated against because you filed an ADEA claim? We work with all aspects of Federal and Florida employment discrimination law and want to help you get your career back on track.

Workplace Bullying Discrimination
Coping with workplace bullying can be difficult. Equally as challenging are the steps required to make it stop. Is your situation protected by State or Federal law? Call Wenzel Fenton Cabassa, P.A. today and find out where you stand with your case. Workplace bullying doesn’t always involve physical aggression. It can be subtle and psychological, and often takes the form of a manager applying extreme pressure on subordinates to achieve higher production. When this kind of behavior is based on a protected status (such as race, religion, age) or protected activity (such as whistleblowing, opposing unlawful conduct, raising objections to safety violations or wage-hour violations), it is inexcusable, illegal, and against the law.
