What should I do if my employer retaliates against me?

Employers are specifically prohibited from retaliating against employees who have reported wrongdoing or illegal actions (whistleblowers), or have reported some type of discrimination to a manager, supervisor or owner. Unfortunately, some employers choose to retaliate by making up a reason to fire the employee who has made a complaint, reduce working hours or fail to give an expected raise or bonus as a “punishment.” These acts are all illegal, and employees who suffer this type of activity may have the right to seek justice and compensation. Your employee status may be restored, including your seniority, any lost wages, damages and your attorney fees could all be part of what is awarded to you.
