If you, as an employee, believe that you have been paid incorrectly, or discriminated against, harassed, or mistreated because of your race, color, national origin, ethnicity, age, disability, marital status, military status, union membership, past criminal record, or any other characteristic that is protected by applicable law, you have the legal right to complain about it without fear of reprisal.
If after making or filing a complaint, your employer has targeted you for termination, suspension, demotion, or harassment, then you may have a legal claim for unlawful retaliation. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA"), the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"), the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") New York State Human Rights Law, New York State Labor Law, and New York City Human Rights Law expressly prohibit an employer from retaliating against its workers.
