You Told The Truth — And Your Employer Retaliated Against You

If you are like most workers, you are honest and ethical. If you experience discrimination, notice a regulation violation or witness a colleague or employer doing something illegal, you have a right to report this wrongdoing. However, some employers retaliate against well-intentioned employees like you who report violations.

Here are a few examples of actions by employees that could lead to employer retaliation:

  • Opposing discriminatory behavior
  • Refusing to perform an illegal activity
  • Reporting a violation of law by a government entity
  • Taking FMLA leave
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Reporting safety issues
  • Reporting OSHA violations

A workplace retaliation claim must generally meet three criteria:

  1. The employee complained about discrimination or took part in another protected activity.
  2. The employee suffered adversely because of this.
  3. The employer acted adversely toward the employee because of the employee’s activity.
