What is Employer Retaliation
Many state and federal laws grant specific rights to employees. Some of these include worker's compensation, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and various wage payment and collection laws. Essentially, a retaliation claim exists if an employer takes a negative action against an employee because the employee has utilized these laws or otherwise exercised rights granted to the employee.
