If you are like most workers, you are an honest and ethical person. When you are the victim of discrimination or if you witness a co-worker or employer engage in an illegal activity, you have the right to report the violation. Here are a few examples of actions which could lead employer retaliation:
- Opposing discrimination
- Refusing to perform an illegal activity
- Reporting a violation of law by governmental entity
- Taking FMLA leave
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Reporting safety issues
- Reporting OSHA violations
A workplace retaliation claim must generally meet three elements: (1) the employee opposed discrimination or took protected activity, (2) the employee suffered adverse action, and (3) the employer took the adverse action because the employee opposed discrimination or took protected activity.

Our attorneys will take the time to learn about your specific situation thoroughly.
