Recognizing and Dealing with Retaliation

Retaliation in the workplace is an unlawful response by an employer to an employee’s engagement in protected activities, like filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or refusing to engage in illegal activities.

Retaliation can manifest in various forms, including demotion, salary reduction, job or shift reassignment, or unjustified negative evaluations. Recognizing these actions as potential retaliation is the first step.

Legal Protections

Federal and state laws protect employees from retaliation. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces these protections under statutes like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. If an employee suspects retaliation, documenting the instances and seeking legal advice is essential.

At Mitchell & Sheahan, we help employees who face retaliation seek justice and guide them in establishing practices that prevent such situations.
