Retaliation For Reporting Harassment
Were you fired for reporting sexual harassment? Did your employer demote you after you raised a claim for discrimination? If so, you may be able to receive compensation for lost wages and other damages because it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for reporting harassment or discrimination.

Protection From Retaliation For Reporting Discrimination
As an employee, you are protected when you report any of the following types of discrimination:
- Religious discrimination
- Sexual orientation or LGBT discrimination
- Gender discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Disability discrimination
This protection means that your employer cannot fire, demote or discriminate against you because you reported discrimination or you supported another employee’s discrimination claim.
The same protection is available to you if you report sexual harassment in the workplace. Your employer cannot, under the law, retaliate against you for reporting sexual harassment. In addition to a sexual harassment claim against your employer, you may have a retaliatory discharge claim if your employer fired you for reporting the harassment.
