What is Employer Retaliation?
Sometimes an employer takes negative actions against an employee who has reported discrimination, harassment, code violations, fraud, embezzlement, or other types of illegal activity at work. In employment law, this is known as employer retaliation.
Common Forms of Retaliation at Work
Some common types of retaliation in the workplace include:
- Denial of training
- Disciplinary actions against the employee
- Exclusion from meetings or projects you previously were involved with
- Failure to consider the employee for a promotion
- Firing of an employee (or wrongful termination)
- Increased workload
- Micromanagement of employee after complaint
- Negative performance reviews
- Salary reduction or lack of earned raises
- Job or shift reassignment
The definition of retaliation at work is that retaliation takes place anytime an employer punishes an employee for engaging in legally protected activity. However, it is important to note that only changes that have an adverse effect on your employment are retaliatory. For instance, if you were given a promotion soon after reporting some form of illegal activity at work, this would likely not be considered retaliation as it would be considered as having a positive effect on you.
What to Do If Experiencing Workplace Retaliation
If you suspect that your employer may be retaliating against you, we recommend first talking to your supervisor or someone from human resources. They may have a good explanation for the actions which you felt may be retaliation. If they fail to give a reasonable explanation, you then may voice your concerns about retaliation and point out that this negative action took place shortly after you lodged a complaint. If your employer fails to rectify the problem with you, it then is time to take things to the next level and contact a workplace retaliation lawyer to discuss making a claim.
