Employer Retaliation


Rochester Employee Rights Defense Firm

What exactly is employer retaliation and when is it illegal? The award-winning Rochester employment lawyers at The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. have helped many clients facing unlawful cases of employer retaliation. State and federal laws prohibit employers from taking adverse action against employees who have participated in "protected activity."

Protected activities include:

  • Pursuing deserved benefits
  • Complaining about unlawful discrimination or harassment in the workplace
  • Filing a discrimination or harassment claim against the employer
  • Filing a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claim against the employer
  • "Whistleblowing" or alerting authorities to illegal conduct on the part of the employer
  • Forming or joining a labor union or attending union events
  • Refusing to join or resigning from a labor union

Prohibited acts of retaliation on the part of the employer can include the following:

  • Termination
  • Demotion
  • Refusal to hire
  • Denial of promotion
  • Threats
  • Unfounded derogative evaluations or references
  • Heightened scrutiny
  • Reduced compensation
