Retaliation

gen-imgEmployees who complain about discrimination or harassment in the workplace are protected from retaliation. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for any of the following:

  • Complaining about harassment or discrimination directed at you or a co-worker
  • Taking or requesting medical leave for yourself or a family member
  • Asking your employer to accommodate your disability (mental or physical)
  • Complaining about or refusing to perform unlawful acts (whistleblower retaliation)
  • Taking or requesting maternity or paternity leave
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Taking time off to attend court hearings to deal with a domestic violence issue
  • Complaining about wage and hour violations

Retaliation can be in the form of a termination, demotion, placement on a performance improvement plan (PIP), transfer to a less desirable position, or other negative personnel action. Retaliation can also include harassment and the creation of a hostile work environment.

Whether you are still employed, have been terminated, or are currently on leave, it is important to understand your rights and your options going forward. Call us today for a free attorney consultation so that we can help you determine whether you have an actionable retaliation claim.
