Employment Law Notes
My employer retaliated against me because: I complained about sexual harassment; I reported a supervisor’s discriminatory treatment of my coworkers; I provided negative information about a manager during an investigation of alleged discrimination. Retaliation claims have become more numerous and can be more difficult to dismiss on summary judgment than claims based on the discrimination out of which the retaliation allegedly arises.
