What Does Employer Retaliation Look Like?
Employer retaliation is any action, statement, or behavior carried out against you in a way that violates your rights and protections as an employer. You can always be penalized by your employer for legal reasons, like failing to complete your expected work duties. But matters become cloudy – and potentially unlawful – when you are not just penalized, but also face retaliation for doing something that was permitted under state or federal laws.
Examples of unlawful employer retaliation include:
- Wrongful termination
- Pay reduction
- Hour cuts
- Overlooked for promotion
- Exclusion from benefits
To clarify further, employer retaliation must be linked to some sort of permitted action you took that your employer wants to discourage or punish. For example, you go to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to report suspicion of racial discrimination in your workplace. When your boss hears of your report, you are fired shortly after for no clear reason. It is likely this incident could be proven to be employer retaliation.
