Retaliation Law

Retaliation is not merely for outlaws and members of the criminal underbelly, as silly as that sounds. Retaliation is an act of revenge by an employer. Some employers do not appreciate an individual who “interferes” with their business. It is the employee’s right to make a complaint of discrimination – no matter the type of discrimination.

Common Examples

Many people are unsure whether they have been the victim of retaliation. Often, retaliatory acts are so commonplace that many people think nothing of the negative behavior. Some common examples of retaliation include:

  • An employee goes to their boss and complains that their co-workers are engaging in sexually harassing behavior against her and other female employees. The supervisor feigned compassion. The first chance they got, they informed the co-workers of the complaint. The harassment got worse. Your boss gives you fewer hours. The boss says that it is to avoid the harassment. This is retaliation for making a complaint of sexual harassment.
  • An employer and employee are in a battle over an alleged discriminatory act. The court found that there was no actionable discriminatory act. The employee goes back to work. Their boss gives them a poor review in the next review. It is punishment for making a claim. Even though the court dismissed the underlying claim, a boss cannot retaliate for a failed claim. This is true no matter how baseless the court found the underlying claim.
  • Co-workers of an ex-employee may testify at a discrimination trial. The co-workers still work for the employer in question. Co-workers received a summons to appear and testify. Failing to appear could result in a court order against them or even jail if they refused to testify. The co-workers cannot lie about the treatment due to perjury laws. As a result, they cooperate and are honest about the discriminatory treatment. When the co-workers return to work following the trial, they find that they have lost their jobs. This is retaliation and illegal.

Act Immediately

Following a retaliatory act, you might be feeling a number of emotions including defeat. That is the point of retaliation. Your boss or employer wants to hurt you for daring to speak out against them. They also want to deter anyone else from speaking out or participating in a legal proceeding. Likewise, retaliating is a hope that you will drop your efforts.

This is bullying behavior, and it is illegal. Do not let your employers coerce you into keeping quiet. Even if you feel tired from fighting, do not worry. Allow us to make all the noise for you. We are ready to fight for your full compensation as allowed by law.
