What does retaliation look like?
While most people think of retaliation in the form of termination, retaliation can present in many other forms.
Retaliation in the form of discrimination or harassment can manifest as:
- Failure to promote
- Negative reassignment, reclassification or transfer
- Isolation or intimidation in the workplace
- Unwarranted disciplinary action
- Undeservedly negative employment references
- Refusal to rehire
- Threats of adverse action
While employers can legitimately terminate or discipline any employee no matter their workers' compensation status, this negative action must not be a pretext for workers' compensation retaliation and the action cannot violate other employment laws.
