At the Sanders Firm, P.C. in New York City we handle a range of cases related to retaliation in association with civil rights complaints made against employers. In the United States, you have the right to file complaints regarding discrimination and other unfair practices by employers. Your employer may not retaliate if you do so. Retaliation is covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Under the Act, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-3(a), it allows “a person claiming to be aggrieved” to file charges against his employer alleging an unlawful employment practice, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-5(b). In the case of a “public employee,” the employee must have spoken as a “citizen” as opposed to a “public employee” and the subject matter must have been a matter of “public concern.” Exposing governmental inefficiency and misconduct is a matter of considerable significance.
