How Do I Know Whether I’m Protected By Anti-Retaliation Laws?

In order to be protected from illegal workplace retaliation, you typically must have engaged in one of the following protected activities prior to the time that your employer began to mistreat you:

  • You filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleging a hostile work environment or discrimination on the basis of race, age, sex, religion, or other protected classification.
  • You complained to the human resources department or an employer hotline about discrimination, unethical practices, or legal violations.
  • You requested or took leave under the FMLA.
  • You made a reasonable request to accommodate your disability.

What Are The Common Ways That Employers Retaliate Against Their Employees?

Workplace retaliation typically includes one or more of the following adverse actions:

  • A material change in the conditions of your employment, such as demotion, suspension, re-assignment to an unfavorable position, or job termination.
  • Unfair performance evaluations.
  • Subtle harassment, such as delayed responses to your e-mails, failing to timely approve leave requests and expense reimbursement requests, denying you the opportunity to attend job advancement opportunities, failing to include you in team meetings.
