An employer may not retaliate against any individual for:
- Complaining about discrimination
- Requesting accommodation under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) or similar state provision
- Filing a discrimination charge with the EEOC or state civil rights division
- Participating in a discrimination proceeding on behalf of yourself or another person
- Opposing discrimination against you or another person.
That is, an employer may not fire, demote, harass, or otherwise retaliate against you in any form, including giving a bad (adverse) employment evaluation. Similarly, an employer is prohibited from coercion, intimidation, threat, harassment, or interference in an employee’s exercise of her/his anti-discrimination rights or encouragement of someone else’s exercise of her/his rights.
