Retaliation against an employee for enaging in a "protected activity" is illegal. "Protected Activities" include reporting or filing a complaint for discrimination, refusing to obey a discriminatory order, particpating in proceedings, requesting accomodations related to discrimination, reporting safety violations or other illegal conduct ("whistleblowers"), and associating with someone who has engaged in a protected activity.
"Retaliate" means to take an adverse employment action in response to an employee's legal conduct. "Adverse action" can include termination, refusal to promote, demotion, giving a negative perfomance review, a reduction in hours, assignment to a less desirable shift or location, or harassment. Adverse actions do not include petty slights or annoyances.
