Employers aren’t allowed to retaliate against employees for participating in another employee’s discrimination case. But sometimes supervisors get frustrated and may threaten some form of retaliation. If that happens and you find out about it, act fast. Make sure the threat is never carried out.
Recent case: Judith Thompson testified on behalf of a co-worker who claimed she had been sexually harassed. Thompson claimed that later, a supervisor threatened to discipline her in retaliation. But Thompson was, in fact, never disciplined.
She sued anyway, claiming that the threat itself was retaliation.
The Court of Appeal of California disagreed and dismissed her case. The threat alone didn’t adversely change her working conditions. (Thompson v. City of Los Angeles, No. B213601, Court of Appeal of California, 2nd District, 2010)
