    How Do I Protect Myself From Workplace Retaliation?

    In order to protect yourself from workplace retaliation, you typically must have opposed workplace discrimination. You can do that by filing an EEOC complaint. Also, you can submit a complaint to your human resources department. You’re also protected from retaliation if you made a request for a disability accommodation. Additionally, you’re protected if you made an FMLA leave request.

    Common Types of Workplace Retaliation

    Workplace retaliation typically includes one or more of the following adverse actions:

    • A demotion, suspension, unfavorable job re-assignment, or job termination.
    • An unfair performance evaluation.
    • Subtle harassment, such as delayed responses to your e-mails, failing to timely approve leave requests and expense reimbursement requests, denying you the opportunity to attend job advancement opportunities, or failing to include you in team meetings.
