RETALIATION FOR MAKING A COMPLAINT OF DISCRIMINATION/HARASSMENT
Retaliation in the workplace includes adverse (negative) action taken against an employee for filing or making a complaint of discrimination or harassment or for supporting another employee's complaint of discrimination or harassment. The most common type of retaliation claim involves an employee who complains to his or her employer that s/he is being harassed or discriminated against and then that employee begins to face unfair treatment (i.e., retaliation) by their employer because of their complaint(s). Employees also find themselves being retaliated against by their employer after they have filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the TWC (Texas Workforce Commission). You need to know that retaliation is unlawful!
