Workplace retaliation refers to a negative action taken against an employee after he or she files some type of complaint. Federal law protects employees from workplace retaliation as a result of complaints regarding harassment or discrimination. You have the right to feel that you can make such a complaint without facing punishment from your employer.

Workplace retaliation could mean anything from a demotion or pay reduction to termination or a job reassignment.
