Retaliation

Under nearly every anti-discrimination law is a provision that makes it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee who engages in “protected activity” such as opposing discrimination in the workplace (e.g., complaining about sexual harassment and being fired), filing any sort of complaint with a government agency or whistle-blowing.  The Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA) also applies if an employer takes an adverse employment action against the employee because that employer believes the employee has exercised any of the above rights.

If you have engaged in what you believe to be protected activity and your employer has taken an adverse action against you (e.g., suspended you, fired you, lowered you pay, or changed your shift, etc.) then you may have a retaliation claim.
