It’s human nature for employers to be angry when an employee files a claim that may put them in a bad light, and employers often act on the impulse by retaliating against that employee.
However, it is illegal for you employer to retaliate against you for:
- Filing a discrimination claim
- Testifying on behalf of a coworker with a discrimination or sexual harassment claim
- Participating in an EEOC investigation
- Filing a sexual harassment claim
- Whistleblowing illegal coworker or company activities internally or to a government agency
If your employer has retaliated against you for opposing discrimination or other reporting illegal activity, put the hard-working workplace retaliation lawyers of Yen Pilch Robaina & Kresin PLC on your side.
There are many ways that an employer may retaliate against an employee. Here are some of the most common:
- Termination or Firing: One of the most severe forms of retaliation is firing or terminating an employee shortly after they engage in a protected activity. This can create a strong inference of retaliation if the timing is suspicious.
- Demotion: An employer might demote an employee as a form of retaliation, moving them to a lower position with reduced pay or fewer responsibilities.
- Reduced Hours or Pay: Some employers may retaliate by cutting an employee's work hours or reducing their pay as a way to punish them for engaging in protected activities.
- Negative Performance Reviews: Employees might receive unwarranted negative performance reviews or evaluations following their engagement in protected activities.
- Exclusion or Isolation: Retaliation can also take the form of social isolation or exclusion from meetings, projects, or team activities.
- Unwarranted Disciplinary Actions: Employers may unfairly subject employees to disciplinary actions, such as write-ups or suspensions, as a means of retaliation.
- Unfavorable Transfers or Assignments: An employer might transfer an employee to a less desirable location or department or assign them less desirable tasks in retaliation.
Employees who believe they are experiencing retaliation should consult with an employment attorney as soons as possible and consider documenting the incidents as evidence.
