Agencies Release Joint Fact Sheet on Unlawful Retaliation

Last week, the National Labor Relations Board issued NLRB Memorandum OM 17-10, announcing a Fact Sheet authored jointly by the NLRB, U.S. Department of Labor, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.

The Fact Sheet, titled Retaliation Based on Exercise of Workplace Rights Is Unlawful, explains that the agencies will protect all employees from retaliation by employers because the employee seeks to assert his or her workplace rights. The Fact Sheet is focused in particular in preventing retaliation associated with immigration status.
