Retaliation Claims on the Rise

It’s always been easier for lawyers to prove retaliation in the workplace than harassment, discrimination, or even wrongful termination.

With so many people now out of work, it’s natural that retaliation claims against employers is now on the rise – 23% this year over last.

The classic example of retaliation comes from an employee who did the right thing – a whistleblower notification, a complaint against a supervisor or fellow employee – and that was terminated, transferred or had other repercussions from their employer.

A good article on this trend is from the Wall Street Journal.
