Is Your Employer Retaliating Against You?

Retaliation in the workplace occurs when an employee makes a claim of discrimination or harassment to a supervisor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the employer treats the employee negatively.

Retaliation can occur with any type of discrimination or harassment report, including discrimination based on race, color, national origin, gender, disability status, age and sexual orientation.

Examples of retaliation at work include but are not limited to:

  • Firing or demoting an employee
  • Leaving an employee out of training opportunities or opportunities for advancement
  • Moving an employee to a different department or changing their job responsibilities
  • Disciplining the employee
  • Discontinuing an employee's benefits

If you made a report to your supervisor or the EEOC for discrimination or harassment and your employer has taken action against you, you could be the victim of retaliation.

An experienced attorney can assist you with a retaliation claim in order to protect your rights under Pennsylvania law.
