Retaliation in the Workplace
Birmingham Employment Lawyers
What is retaliation?
According to U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) laws and
the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are prohibited from
firing, demoting, harassing, discriminating, or otherwise "retaliating"
against an employee who has participated in some sort of legal action
against an employer. This means that employees throughout Alabama are
protected by both state and federal employment laws after taking legal
action against an employer.
Whistleblower Protection Programs
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also provides
additional protections to employees under the Whistleblower Protection
Program. OSHA protects employees who have been retaliated against after
reporting dangerous working conditions, reporting a work-related injury,
or reporting a violation of safety statutes.
- Wrongful termination
- Denial of pay, promotion, overtime, or pay increase
- Intimidation, threats, or disciplining
