Under federal law, employees are protected from retaliation after they file a complaint in or out of the workplace. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was established to provide protection from retaliation because of workplace complaints. Retaliation can take place when an employer disciplines his or her employee for taking a legally protected action. Any negative reaction affecting your employment, such as firing, job reassignment, or demotion, can be considered retaliation. If you are aware of a retaliatory act within your workplace after taking a stand or filing a complaint, you can obtain legal guidance from our employment rights lawyers. With more than 40 years of combined experience, our attorneys can help you develop a strong case that protects your rights.
WHAT ACTIONS ARE CONSIDERED RETALIATION?
As an employee in the United States, you are protected by the EEOC from retaliation by your employer. Gaining knowledge of what constitutes retaliation is important, however, to ensuring that your claim is well founded. If the employer’s negative actions would hinder a reasonable person from making a complaint, the circumstance is considered retaliation. You are protected from retaliation by an employer if you cooperate in an EEOC investigation or are a witness in an investigation. Whistleblowers are also protected under federal law from retaliation by their employer. You should be allowed to assert your rights without being in fear of retaliation. If that is not the case, you can allow our firm to help you protect these rights.
In some cases, retaliation is a subtle action that can only be recognized with careful eyes. Whether your employer’s actions are clear or subtle, you will need to obtain the knowledgeable and experienced representation of our firm.
