Employees have the right to engage in many legally protected activities. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for: filing a workers’ compensation claim, complaining about discrimination or harassment, or refusing to engage in illegal activities or reporting those activities. The law also protects employees who oppose or refuse to participate in employment practices that discriminate based on age, race, sex, religion or disability.
Retaliation can include any unfavorable employment action, such as termination, discipline, demotion, reduction in salary, or job reassignment. Retaliation can also be directed at family members of employees who oppose or complain about illegal discrimination.
