Federal employment laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees who have complained to their employer or the EEOC about discrimination on the basis of certain protected characteristics, including race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability or gender. Title VII also prohibits retaliation against employees who oppose discrimination or harassment based on these protected characteristics or who participate in an investigation or legal proceeding related to such discrimination or harassment.
Retaliation can take many forms, such as firing, demotion, or other adverse employment actions that are taken against an employee because they have opposed discrimination or harassment, or participated in an investigation or legal proceeding related to such behavior. Retaliation can also include more subtle forms of punishment, such as ostracism or other forms of social isolation or assigning an employee to less favorable work assignments or tasks.
If you believe that you have experienced retaliation at work because you have opposed discrimination or harassment, or because you have participated in an investigation or legal proceeding related to such behavior, it is important to contact our office immediately so that we can guide you through the reporting the retaliation to your employer or to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for exercising their rights under Title VII, and you have the right to a workplace that is free from retaliation.
