Have you complained about perceived illegalities in the workplace and been retaliated against? Retaliation can come in many different forms. An employer may retaliate by subjecting the employee to harassment or by trying to build a case against the employee by excessively scrutinizing the employee’s work or by making the working conditions so intolerable that the employee quits. Retaliation claims can be brought under a variety of federal laws as well as state laws. For example, the protection against retaliation applies if you have complained about or opposed illegal discrimination, asked for a medical or family leave absence under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), made a safety complaint or participated in a safety investigation, or filed a worker’s compensation claim.
