An employer may not retaliate against any individual for:

  1. Complaining about discrimination
  2. Requesting accommodation under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) or similar state provision
  3. Filing a discrimination charge with the EEOC or state civil rights division
  4. Participating in a discrimination proceeding on behalf of yourself or another person
  5. Opposing discrimination against you or another person.

That is, an employer may not fire, demote, harass, or otherwise retaliate against you in any form, including giving a bad (adverse) employment evaluation. Similarly, an employer is prohibited from coercion, intimidation, threat, harassment, or interference in an employee’s exercise of her/his anti-discrimination rights or encouragement of someone else’s exercise of her/his rights.
