Most of the federal laws that protect employees’ rights contain provisions that make it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against someone who engages in conduct which the law protects.

“Protected conduct” includes all aspects of trying to oppose or remedy discrimination, such as: filing a charge of discrimination; threatening to file a charge; complaining about, opposing or protesting perceived discrimination against yourself or another employee; assisting someone else in opposing discrimination; giving evidence or testimony to an investigator; refusing to engage in conduct that the you believe to be unlawful; and refusing to assist an employer (by testimony or otherwise) in discriminating.

Proving retaliation may be challenging, for assistance please contact our office.
