What Is Retaliation?
It is against federal law for employers to punish their employees for reporting an injury, reporting a workplace safety violation or filing for workers’ compensation benefits. This is known as retaliation. Examples of retaliation can include:
- Assigning you undesirable or lower-grade tasks
- Giving you poor performance reviews
- Changing your schedule
- Transferring you
- Firing or demoting you
Employers who retaliate against workers may owe the victim additional compensation for their damages. As workers’ compensation lawyers, we have handled hundreds of successful cases in which we demonstrated that an employee engaged in a protected activity and suffered adverse action as a result.
