Chicago Retaliation Attorneys
It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for reporting discrimination or harassment to management on behalf of yourself or a colleague or participating in an investigation of discrimination or harassment either conducted within the organization or by an outside agency. If this is happening to you, it may be because of your protected activity.
Unfortunately, retaliation can become complicated in the workplace when it is not so obvious that it’s even occurring. Workplace retaliation occurs when you get punished by your employer because you exercised your legal rights or because you engaged in a lawful activity.
It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for:
- Reporting or filing a discrimination claim;
- Reporting or filing a sexual harassment claim;
- Participating in an investigation or a lawsuit about a claim; or
- Reporting that your employer is doing something illegal.
If you have been the victim of retaliation, please contact Atlas Consumer Law immediately. The passage of time can eliminate your right to sue. To report abuse or retaliation or to obtain more information about your rights and remedies, please call or complete the form.
