Most Federal employment laws prohibit retaliation. Retaliation occurs when an employer punishes an employee for participating in legally protected activity. Retaliation can include but is not limited to: termination; demotion; change in job description, position or shift; or a salary reduction.
If you’ve filed a claim for workplace discrimination or even discussed the filing of such a claim, there is the possibility that your employer may feel threatened and engage in acts of retaliation as a means of silencing your complaint or preventing you from asserting your legal rights.
