Anti-Retaliation Statutes

You cannot terminate an employee because he/she exercised a right granted by a state or federal statute or certain administrative regulations. Typically, employee anti-retaliation claims occur when an employee refuses to violate the law, for example, disposing of hazardous waste improperly or accepting less than the minimum wage or mandatory overtime rate, or when an employee “blows the whistle” to a government agency on an employer believed to be violating the law. Whistleblower claims are continually on the rise. For more information, see Whistleblower Protections.
