Atlanta based attorneys helping U.S. Government workers deal with workplace retaliation
Federal law protects against retaliation. This is true whether when an employee complains to a supervisor, makes a formal complaint to the EEOC, or has been a witness in an investigation pertaining to another worker’s complaint. One is protected as long as a complaint made to the EEOC is in good faith, even if it proves to be unfounded. Retaliation may take the obvious form of an immediate demotion, job reassignment, or poor performance review directly following a workplace discrimination complaint. Retaliation by an employer can also include more subtle measures. Such measures may take the form of suddenly being excluded from staff meetings or seeing a reduction in responsibilities following a complaint. Taking action against such an employer is one’s right and the process of doing so can seem less intimidating with the assistance of an attorney?
