It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against you for reporting the following:
- Harassment based on membership in a protected class
- Failure to pay wages, overtime and benefits
- Suspected violations of law
Retaliation can take many forms. It may include termination, demotion, loss of pay, suspensions, transfers, shift changes, undesirable job duties or assignments, receiving the “cold shoulder,” and being excluded from opportunities for professional development, among others. Whether a particular action constitutes retaliation depends on the unique facts and circumstances of each case.
