Retaliation for EEO Activity

What is retaliation?

Workplace retaliation occurs when an employer punishes an employee for engaging in an activity that is protected by law, such as reporting employment discrimination or blowing the whistle on fraud, see Whistleblower Retaliation.

All of the major employment discrimination laws prohibit employers from retaliating against employees for engaging in activities protected under the laws, such as opposing employment discrimination or participating in discrimination investigations or lawsuits. The Title VII retaliation provision, which is set forth below, is typical of anti-retaliation provisions in employment discrimination laws:


It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to discriminate against any of his employees or applicants for employment . . . because he has opposed any practice made an unlawful employment practice by this subchapter, or because he has made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under this subchapter.


If you need a lawyer because of retaliation on the job in D.C. or Virginia resulting from a complaint about employment discrimination, call attorney Lori Searcy today or complete the employment case review form. For information about retaliation in the workplace unrelated to discrimination, read our Whistleblower Retaliation page.
