- Gain an understanding of the rules and guidelines surrounding retaliation in the workplace. Learn about how the EEOC's regulations apply to you and your team and how to avoid retaliation claims.
Employees in the US are protected from retaliation under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC. Retaliation occurs more often that you might think. For instance, it happens when an employer punishes an employee for engaging in a legally protected activity. Retaliation can include any negative job action, such as demotion, discipline, firing, salary reduction, or job or shift reassignment. It can also be more subtle, and disguised. In this course, we'll talk about this complicated law and its history. We'll also discuss the three key terms commonly used with retaliation complaints. *This course is an overview of the topic and not intended to be legal advice. For a more in-depth understanding, please contact your HR department, legal counsel, or visit the EEOC's website at EEOC.gov.
