Retaliation and Adverse Action

The EEOC defines adverse action as follows:

“An adverse action is an action taken to try to keep someone from opposing a discriminatory practice, or from participating in an employment discrimination proceeding.”

Discrimination in the workplace remains a problem. Furthermore, retaliation is often the basis of discrimination. Some examples of this behavior include:

  • Assaulting a person in an attempt to deter them from pursuing their rights.
  • Employment actions, such as denying a promotion or refusing to hire a particular person.
  • Other types of action that affect employment, such as unjustified evaluations or threats.

The EEOC understands that discrimination and retaliation continues to plague many companies and workers throughout the country. If you want to learn more about this, visit our workplace discrimination webpage. We can help you better understand your employee rights.
