When you engage in “protected activity” at work and your employer takes a tangible job action against you as a result, your employer has retaliated against you. In many instances you are protected from retaliation by local, state, and federal law.

What is “protected activity”? If you oppose something your employer is engaging in that is unlawful, such as illegal Harassment, illegal Discrimination, or for violating Wage and Hour laws, and your opposition is reasonable you are in most cases protected from retaliation. If you participate in activities that are connected with an investigation into illegal Harassment, Discrimination, Wage and Hour violations, or similar activity your employer may not retaliate against you as a result of your participation.   

If you have concerns that you are the victim of retaliation please contact our law firm. In many instances there are strict time limitations for asserting your employment rights.
