Protected Workplace Activities
According to the law, an employer cannot fire, demote, engage in harassment, alter working conditions or otherwise retaliate against an employee who has engaged in a protected activity. Some examples of activities that are protected under the law include:
- Whistleblowing activity, such as filing a qui tam claim under the False Claims Act
- Complaining of discrimination or sexual harassment to your employer or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
- Requesting a leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Reporting illegal activity to law enforcement authorities
If you have made any claims or engaged in any type of protected activity, you may still have a valid claim for retaliation or wrongful termination, even if your initial claim or complaint is denied. Our New York employment law attorneys will thoroughly review your case and help explore all of the options that may be available to you.
