Retaliation Claims

It takes courage to stand up to an employer and refuse to take part in its illegal or unethical activities. Unfortunately, this courage is often rewarded with retaliation by employers. Workers who report misconduct or try to assert their rights may face adverse action, including:

  • Termination of employment or forced resignation
  • Suspension
  • Reduced hours
  • Demotion or denial of advancement opportunities
  • Additional scrutiny or performance reviews

It is important to know that there are laws in place that protect whistleblowers and other employees from employer retaliation. These protections make it illegal for an employer to treat an employee adversely because he or she engaged in a protected activity. Protected activities include conduct varying from an employee requiring reasonable accommodation for a disability to an employee complaining of or refusing to participate in the employer's illegal activities.
