Workplace retaliation laws in Maryland are designed to protect employees from adverse actions taken by their employers in response to the employees exercising their legal rights or reporting violations of the law. Key points regarding workplace retaliation laws in Maryland include:
Protected Activities: Employees in Maryland are protected from retaliation for engaging in various legally protected activities, such as filing a complaint about workplace discrimination, reporting safety violations, whistleblowing, or participating in investigations.
Adverse Actions: Adverse actions can include termination, demotion, reduced hours or pay, harassment, or any other actions that negatively affect the terms and conditions of employment.
Maryland Fair Employment Practices Act (FEPA): The Maryland FEPA prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who exercise their rights under the Act, including reporting unlawful discriminatory practices or opposing discriminatory practices.
Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA): Under OSHA, employees have the right to report unsafe working conditions without facing retaliation. Employers cannot take adverse actions against employees for raising safety concerns.
Whistleblower Protection: Maryland has various laws that protect whistleblowers who report certain illegal or unethical activities, ensuring that employees can report wrongdoing without fear of retaliation.
Legal Recourse: Employees who believe they have faced retaliation can file a complaint with the appropriate government agency, such as the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights (MCCR) or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). They may also pursue legal action through the courts.
It's crucial for both employers and employees to understand these laws to maintain a fair and compliant work environment. If you believe you have experienced workplace retaliation, consulting an employment attorney in Maryland can provide valuable legal guidance and help protect your rights.
