Workplace Retaliation

Workplace Retaliation

Experienced New Mexico Employment Law Attorney

Protecting Your Rights against Retaliatory Conduct by Your Employer

Under federal and New Mexico laws, your employer cannot retaliate against you for asserting any right granted to you under local, state and federal laws. That means that any adverse act taken against you in response to exercising a legal right may give you the right to pursue legal action against your employer. Retaliation claims can get complex and messy in a hurry. If you’ve been treated improperly for filing a valid workers’ compensation claim, for reporting employer wrongdoing, or for exercising any other legal right, Buchanan Law can help.

At Buchanan Law, we have fought for the rights of workers for more than 20 years. Though we focus our current practice on claims arising in New Mexico, attorney Deena Buchanan has handled employment law controversies in more than 20 jurisdictions, working with EEOC representatives in those states to protect the rights of workers. She has an intimate understanding of the laws and legal procedures in New Mexico, as well as the court systems and how judges try employment law disputes. Though we maintain offices in Albuquerque, we can set up an in-person consultation anywhere in the state.

Attorney Buchanan has extensive trial experience and has served as lead trial counsel on a number of complex, high-stakes employment law disputes. She’s earned accolades from judge, clients and other attorneys for her poise and composure at all stages of a trial.

At Buchanan Law, we know that your case is unique. We’ll carefully investigate to learn exactly what happened, as well as what you need to move forward. We’ll keep you informed and involved at all times, so that you know where you stand and what your options are. To set up an appointment or to inquire whether you qualify for a free initial consultation, call our offices at 505-900-3559 or contact us online.
