Employees who report or complain about discrimination in the workplace are protected against retaliation under both state and federal law. This protection applies whether a complaint of discrimination is about you or someone else in the workplace.
In order to be entitled to this protection, it is important for the employee to take certain steps when they become aware of discrimination in the workplace. If the employee has been fired, terminated or subjected to harassment because they made a complaint of discrimination, the employer can be subject to liability for damages.
