Understanding Employer Retaliation
If you were fired, demoted, or suspended, or had your job duties removed or your pay reduced because you challenged unlawful or discriminatory actions on the part of your employer, you may have been retaliated against unlawfully. If you participated in an investigation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Department of Civil Rights on behalf of yourself or others, and the employer took adverse action against you afterward, you may have been retaliated against unlawfully. In these cases, you may have a retaliation claim.
Potential Retaliation Claim Challenges
Some employees may have to file with the EEOC or another agency by a specific date to protect their rights. Victims of retaliation must also review their employee handbook and employment agreements, like an arbitration agreement, to determine other deadlines. Our lawyers can help you determine the deadlines for filing a claim in your first meeting.
