Retaliation for disclosing an EEOC claim

The 7th circuit court of appeals recently held that it can be retaliation when a corporation publically  disclosed that an employee filed a claim with the Equal Employment Occupational Commission (EEOC). The employee basically said that this disclosure made it impossible for her to get a job.  With the increased use of the Internet it becomes easier for prospective employers to find this information (the EEOC does not disclose this information). If your employer or ex-employer posted that you filed a claim of discrimination you may have a claim for retaliation under both Texas law and Federal law.  In El Paso, Texas many employees file claims of discrimination either with the EEOC or with their employer.  If this is disclosed to outside parties or prospective employers then the employee may have a claim for employment retaliation.
