“Employers have no right to punish employees for exercising their legal rights”
Retaliation occurs when an employer punishes or takes an adverse action against an employee who has reported an employer’s unlawful behavior to authorities. Oftentimes, employers will fire, demote or in some other way punish an employee for the lawful reporting. Employees are free to file charges against an employer and they are protected by the law. If an employer has taken action against you because you have reported their wrongdoing to the EEOC, the police or another agency, we are here to help you use the law to take action against these employers.
