New York Retaliation Attorneys
Retaliation is prohibited in the workplace. If you experience retaliation in the workplace, you are entitled to the same remedies as any other discrimination case. Retaliation in the workplace simply means you made a complaint about discriminatory conduct(a protected activity) and you were retaliated against as a result. The U.S. Supreme Court defines retaliation in the workplace as any conduct by an employer which would discourage a person from pursuing their rights. In fact, retaliatory actions by your employer against you are not limited to the termination of your job, but include any negative action taken by your employer against you, a family member or a friend in response to your complaint. It can include altering your normal responsibilities, transferring you to another location and reducing your work hours.
