What constitutes workplace retaliation?

As an employee in Minnesota, you have certain rights, and your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you or punish you if you make the decision to exercise these rights. For example, if you witness or experience discrimination or sexual harassment at work and "blow the whistle" about the incident to a supervisor, you are legally protected in your right to do so. Similarly, if you refuse a supervisor's advances or refuse to obey the orders of a superior because you are being asked to do something you know is illegal, you cannot be retaliated against for taking action against them.

City worker claims retaliation by superiors for reporting assault

Although employment law, both at the federal and the state levels, protects employees in Chaska, and elsewhere, from being mistreated by employers, it is not always easy for a worker to speak up when their rights have been violated.
