There are a number of factors that go into winning a First Amendment–retaliation case. You must establish that you spoke on a matter of public concern and as a private citizen, not as a part of your ordinary or ad hoc job duties. You must also prove that the protected speech was a significant or motivating factor behind your discharge or adverse employer reaction.
Proving these things can be difficult and is best done with the guidance of a legal professional. The Chandra Law Firm has helped countless clients achieve favorable outcomes in First Amendment–retaliation cases. We are pleased to offer our experience to those who have been affected by these issues.
