What Retaliation Looks Like

Workplace Retaliation is defined as any action taken against you by your employer after filing a formal complaint. You may have filed an employment discrimination or harassment claim, or reported other illegal activity. Wrongful termination is one form of illegal retaliation. Other prohibited retaliatory actions include:

  • Harassment or creation of a hostile work environment
  • Reduction of hours or reassignment
  • Demotion or refusal to promote
  • Unfounded negative performance reviews

Whether you live in New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, you are protected from workplace retaliation under state civil rights laws and qui tam laws. Other state and federal laws also protect you against discrimination for supporting an individual who reported these crimes.
