It is illegal to retaliate against employees for reporting unlawful or discriminatory employment policies and practices. Such practices often include wage violations, harassment or discrimination. To be protected under federal and state retaliation laws, an employee need only have a good faith belief that they are reporting unlawful practices, even if their belief turns out to later be unfounded.
Retaliation comes in many forms ranging from harassment, transfer and demotion to unwarranted write-ups, disciplinary action, suspension, and wrongful termination. Retaliation laws are designed to combat adverse employment treatment that prevents reasonable employees from speaking out.
