What Are The Activities An Employee May Report That Lead to Retaliation?
Some common activities that can lead to retaliation include:
Reporting illegal or unethical conduct in the workplace including sexual harassment, discrimination or harassment, violation of federal laws, age discrimination, harassment based on national origin or sexual orientation
Filing a complaint with a regulatory agency, such as OSHA or the EEOC
Participating in an internal investigation into workplace misconduct
Refusing to participate in illegal activities, such as fraud or discrimination
Requesting reasonable accommodations for a disability or medical condition
Taking protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
If you engage in any of these activities and experience negative employment actions shortly thereafter, such as termination, demotion, harassment, or other forms of adverse action you may have a potential claim. It is important to consult with an experienced Delaware retaliation lawyer to evaluate your situation and determine the best course of action to protect your rights.
