According to statistics from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), retaliation is the most common charge filed with the agency that investigates claims of employment discrimination. Retaliation can occur after an employee complains to an employer that the employee is being treated differently based on a protected characteristic such as race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability or religion or when an employee complains about harassment based on a protected characteristic. Retaliation can take many forms, including but not limited to, termination, demotion, reduction in pay or responsibilities and also include more subtle actions. If you have questions regarding workplace retaliation, please contact your Tampa Employment Lawyer, Darren McClain.
