Retaliation

Retaliation occurs when an employer, employment agency, or labor organization takes an adverse action against a covered individual because he or she engaged in a protected activity.

Adverse Action

An adverse action is an action taken to try to keep someone from opposing a discriminatory practice, or from participating in an employment discrimination proceeding. Examples of adverse actions include: demotion, discharge, refusal to hire, unjustified negative evaluations, threats, unjustified negative references, increased surveillance, and etc.

Covered Individuals

Covered individuals are people who have opposed unlawful practices, participating in proceedings, or requested accommodations related to employment discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability. Individuals who have a close association with someone who has engaged in such protected activity are also covered individuals. Individuals who have brought attention to violations of law other than employment discrimination are NOT covered individuals for purposes of anti-discrimination retaliation laws.

Protected Activity

Protected activity includes: opposition to a practice believed to be unlawful discrimination, and participation in an employment discrimination proceeding.
