Employees’ #1 Workplace Complaint
Friday, September 2, 2022 | 1:00 PM ET
Avoid becoming the latest statistic in ‘Retaliation Nation’
“Don’t get mad, get even” may be a good action-movie slogan, but it’s a terrible management style. Yet American bosses continue to respond to employee complaints (of discrimination, safety, etc.) by punishing complainers with discipline or termination.
Last year, more than half (56%) of employee job-discrimination complaints filed with the EEOC included a claim that they were also retaliated against for their complaint. That’s an all-time high.
On September 2, discover what constitutes retaliation in the workplace, what doesn’t, and how your organization can avoid being hauled into court for one dumb manager mistake.
Why is this important now? The U.S. Supreme Court rewrote the definition of “retaliation” a few years ago, making it easier for employees to get their retaliation claims into court—even if it’s only for a subjective “feeling” of retaliation. And the Biden administration is cracking down on employers who punish workers in any way for exercising their legal rights to file (or voice) a complaint.
Stop ignoring this “hidden” legal risk. On September 2, discover the practical, battle-tested strategies for preventing and responding to retaliation in your workplace.
