Retaliation claims can arise under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and many other federal laws like ADA, FMLA, and Sarbanes-Oxley. And a retaliation claim can live even when your employee's underlying discrimination claim fails—so retaliation claims often get tacked on. In fact, it's the most commonly filed charge, representing nearly 43 percent of all claims last year.
There’s always a risk of being sued, but the odds of being subjected to retaliation claims are really high. So you have to take a proactive approach to creating and maintaining a retaliation-free work zone through timely intervention and customized training.
