The law forbids retaliation when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
Employees are protected from retaliation or reprisal for expressing concerns individually or in groups, or raising allegations of prohibited discrimination.
It is illegal to fire, demote, harass, or otherwise “retaliate” against people (applicants or employees) because they filed a charge of discrimination, because they complained to their employer about discrimination on the job, or because they participated in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as an investigation or lawsuit).
It is also illegal for an employer to refuse to promote an employee because he or she filed a charge of discrimination.
If you believe you have been retaliated against by your employer in any way, you may need to contact an Experienced Employment Law Attorney.
