What is Retaliation?

Retaliation occurs when you are punished by your employer for claiming a right or engaging in a lawful activity. Retaliation can occur in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

All the federal, New York and New York City laws that make it unlawful to discriminate against or harass employees or job applicants prohibit an employer from firing, demoting, harassing or otherwise retaliating against individuals who report or file a discrimination charge, or who participate in the investigation of a claim, proceeding, or lawsuit filed under those laws, even if the employer is found not to have discriminated or harassed. In addition, federal, New York State and New York City laws protect you from retaliation in the event you are a "whistleblower," that is, you report your employer to authorities for maintaining unsafe working conditions, or for engaging in unlawful or criminal activity.
