Examples of employer retaliation

As an employee, there is nothing worse than worrying that you may be retaliated against for speaking your mind. Although employer retaliation is not common, this is an issue that has plagued many people in the past, including in Florida as well as every other state.

There are many examples of employer retaliation, including but not limited to harassment, demotion, and termination. As you dig deeper, you will find that these acts can be related to the following:

-- Filing a claim for workers' compensation

-- Complaining about wages, benefits, and other related issues

-- Filing a sexual harassment claim

-- Reporting illegal or fraudulent activity to an outside agency

-- Reporting discrimination, against yourself or another employee

-- Taking leave as entitled under the Family Medical Leave Act

Many people are under the false impression that they have to be terminated in order for retaliation to exist. This is not the case, as retaliation can also lead to a reduction in hours or pay, demotion, or being continually harassed.

If you believe your employer has retaliated against you, now is the time to learn more about what this means to your future. As you obtain more knowledge, it becomes easier to decide what you should do next.

An employer never has the right to retaliate against a worker, however, some will so do as it makes them feel better about the situation. If you find yourself in this unenviable position, don't go away and hope for the best. Instead, learn more about workplace and employer retaliation by reading through the many pages of our website.
