When you report misconduct at the workplace to a government agency or to a supervisor, your employer may try to retaliate against you. This means they may:
- Fire you
- Demote you
- Cut your hours
- Engage in any other form of retaliation that affects your job
If this happens, your employer may be breaking the law and you should retain legal representation as soon as you can.

What Are ‘Protected Activities’ Under the Law?
An employer may not fire or retaliate against employees who engage in actions protected by the law. There are two categories of protected activities:
1. Reporting or Refusing to Participate in Unlawful Activity Employees who report their employer’s potentially illegal conduct or refuse to participate in such conduct are protected against retaliation. An employee’s belief that there is illegal conduct must be both reasonable and in good faith.
2. Participating in an Investigation Employers cannot retaliate against employees who participate in an investigation, lawsuit, or hearing regarding the potentially illegal practices of their employer.
