Workplace retaliation is the term used to describe employers punishing employees for taking part in an activity that is legally protected. It includes any type of negative action involving the employee's job, such as firing, demotion, discipline, reduction of salary, and shift or job reassignment, but can also refer to subtler actions, as well. Federal laws are designed to protect employees' legal rights with provisions that make such acts of retaliation illegal.
