As with employment discrimination, state and federal laws prohibit employers from engaging in retaliation because an employee has filed a charge of discrimination or reported a discriminatory practice. Employment retaliation is also prohibited when employees files a claim for workers' compensation, takes a family or family leave, requests an accommodation because of a disability or reports or refuses to engage in unlawful conduct. In addition, whistleblowers are protected for reporting illegal activity, government fraud, safety violations or other prohibited practices like denying employees overtime pay.
