Retaliation

Retaliation

It is illegal to retaliate against an employee who files a complaint of discrimination for race, color, disability, age, national origin, gender, or sexual harassment.  This is true even if it is found that the discrimination did not occur.  For example, it is illegal for an employer to refuse to promote an employee or fire the employee because she filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC or a lawsuit for discrimination, even if EEOC or the Court later determined no discrimination occurred.  This protects employees who file claims of discrimination in good fait.  Also, anyone who is a witness in a discrimination case or investigation may have the same protection from being retaliated against by an employer.
