The federal, state and local laws protecting employees against employment discrimination and sexual harassment also protect employees from adverse actions by their employer in retaliation for opposing or complaining about prohibited discrimination.  In some cases it can be easier to prove the acts of retaliation than it is to prove the underlying discrimination because the “cause and effect” of complaining about discrimination and adverse retaliatory actions is made apparent by the close timing or other circumstances surrounding the adverse action.

As with employment discrimination and whistleblowing cases, we have extensive experience representing employees and executives in retaliation claims and litigation and have been at the forefront in winning groundbreaking legal decisions expanding the scope of employee protection under federal, state and local discrimination laws.
