Regardless of the outcome of your complaint, an employer may not retaliate against you for making a complaint of a discrimination. This is illegal. Retaliation, like a hostile work environment, can take many forms. Retaliation is any adverse employment action taken against you without a reasonable explanation.
Examples of retaliation are:
- Changing work shifts.
You may not face retaliation for making a complaint, speaking out against the discrimination of another, or otherwise participating in any “investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit” regarding an act of discrimination.
