Preventing Unlawful Retaliation in the Workplace

Course Description

The are many laws governing the workplace that guarantee rights to individual workers, such as the right to be free from discrimination, the right to be paid minimum and overtime wages, and the right to join a union etc. Unlawful retaliation occurs when an employer imposes adverse consequences on an employee for exercising his or her rights or engaging in certain activities that are “protected” by law. Using scenarios and case studies, this course discusses the types of work-related activities that are protected by law, the types of behavior that can lead to a charge of retaliation, and the risks of failing to take steps to prevent unlawful retaliation in the workplace.
