Employee retaliation may be insidious! Part 1
You may not believe this but it is absolutely true. I have experienced every one of the aforementioned adverse actions from my employer! Those who know my story marvel at the fact I'm still employed. I give first credit to GOD Almighty for giving me the wisdom to Learn Basic Employee Rights! That is why I'm so passionate about raising awareness and educating others to do likewise.
Employees have been given a wide berth when it comes to protected activity in participation. Typically, when involved in any investigation, hearing, providing testimony, assisting someone else or making a claim the employee is protected from retaliation.
The one issue with opposition is that is has to be "reasonable". I know, what is deemed "reasonable". Well the following and hopefully some common sense, which isn't so common anymore, will explain better. These are some NON PROTECTED actions not considered "reasonable" opposition by the employee.
There is a significant difference between "participants" and "opposers". "Opposers must act in "good faith" or honest intent when believing the boss has violated their employee rights. However, "participants" usually do not have to share a belief of wrongdoing on the part of the employer. For example, a co-worker is protected in assisting my investigation of the boss violating my (ADA) Americans with Disabilities Act rights without believing or knowing my rights have been violated.
