Retaliation

Any adverse action taken against an employee who has raised civil rights concerns, participated in a civil rights investigation, or reported suspected misconduct when business related reasons do not exist for the action or the action is outside of regular practice. Some examples of retaliation are listed below:

  • Giving unwarranted negative performance evaluations to the reporting employee.
  • Moving the reporting employee frequently and to undesirable locations, without legitimate business justification.
  • Transferring the reporting employee, without legitimate business justification.
  • Reprimanding the reporting employee, without legitimate business justification.
  • Taking adverse salary actions against the reporting employee, without legitimate business justification.
  • Suspending, demoting, or dismissing the reporting employee, without legitimate business justification.
  • Creating a hostile work environment for the reporting employee.
  • Raising civil rights concerns, participating in a civil rights investigation, or reporting suspected misconduct does not exempt an employee from legitimate personnel action taken during the normal course of business.
