Like most people, you hope you always get along with your employer. You never want to find yourself in the position of “you against them.” Unfortunately, this happens every now and again.
For example, if you report your employer for a safety violation they may not take kind to this. While it was within your rights to do so, you could now be faced with a situation in which the company no longer wants to keep you on board as an employee.
It is important to understand the many ways that employers can retaliate, as this will allow you to pinpoint any behavior that is considered illegal.
Some of the most common patterns of employer retaliation include:
— An employee is demoted for reporting a person or the company for some type of wrongdoing.
— Dismissal or termination for filing a complaint.
— An employee is treated poorly for speaking out against the company in some way.
Some employers think they can do whatever they want, retaliating against any worker that does not do exactly what they say.
