You Are Protected by the Law

Have you ever been afraid to address an issue at work because of how your boss might react? There are several protected acts that, as an employee, you have every right to commit and as a Maryland employee, there are laws in place to protect you from the retaliatory actions of your employers.

Protected activities include:

  • Expressing concern about unlawful discrimination.
  • Involvement in a discrimination case or investigation.
  • Submitting a sexual harassment complaint.
  • Expressing concern about violations to the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA.)
  • Complaints regarding overtime violations.
  • Refusal to participate in illegal activity.
  • Requesting an accommodation for a disability.
  • Taking leave under the FMLA or workers' compensation.
  • Reporting illegal activity.

About Adverse Reactions

In order for our Rockville employment law attorneys to determine whether your retaliation claim is actionable, they must prove that a protected activity caused your employer to response with an adverse action.

Adverse actions include:

  • Demotion
  • Changes to salary or benefits
  • Suspension
  • Transfer
  • Termination
  • Workplace discipline
  • Negative employment evaluations
  • And more

There must be a causal connection or link established between the protective activity and the adverse action in order for a retaliation claim to be successful.
