Employer Retaliation

In addition to prohibiting any kind of discrimination, the law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for filing a discrimination claim, helping someone else with a discrimination claim, asking to be paid for overtime, or taking leave protected by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

Examples of Employer Retaliation

You could have a claim for retaliation if:
  • You are disciplined or terminated after speaking up for a co-worker who has been the target of discrimination;
  • You are disciplined or terminated after you complain about not being paid overtime;
  • You are terminated, disciplined, or given less favorable work assignments after you complain about discrimination in the workplace either against you or against someone else;
  • You are disciplined or given less favorable work assignments after you file an EEO or MCHR charge against your employer;
  • You are more closely scrutinized than your co-workers after you make a claim of illegal treatment
