The Law Is On Your Side
Employment laws at both the state and federal levels safeguard employees from harassment and discrimination in the workplace. They also give employees the right to a safe workplace with fair wages. These laws also make it illegal for employers to penalize or punish employees for exercising their rights.
What Amounts To Employer Retaliation?
Illegal retaliation occurs when an employee engages in protected conduct or makes a protected complaint and the employer retaliates with an adverse action, such as:
- Demoting you or terminating your employment
- Reducing your pay or hours
- Denying you promotions
- Excluding you from meetings, trainings or other aspects of employment
- Bullying, intimidating or harassing you
- Denying you benefits, regular wages or overtime pay
- Blacklisting you
- Refusing to acknowledge your allegations
- Reassigning you to less favorable shifts, duties, projects or positions
- Increasing your workload without increasing your pay
- Giving you negative performance reviews after a history of positive reviews
- Denying you access to resources or training that help you maintain your productivity
If you have any questions about whether you’ve experienced illegal employment retaliation, you can turn to me for a professional opinion.
How To Put A Stop To Employer Retaliation
First, you should consider speaking to your company’s human resources team, if there is one. HR is responsible for addressing allegations of illegal employment practices, including retaliation. They should investigate your allegations while protecting your anonymity.
If HR fails to take action, or if you have reason to believe that going to HR will make your situation worse, your next step should be to contact an employment lawyer. I can provide guidance on how best to protect your rights.
