Am I protected from retaliation if I complain about discrimination or bring a discrimination case?

It is illegal to fire, demote, refuse to promote, harass, or otherwise “retaliate” against people (applicants or employees) because they sued for discrimination, because they complained to their employer or other covered entity about discrimination on the job, or because they participated in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as an investigation or lawsuit).

Retaliation & Work Situations

The law forbids retaliation when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
