All of us benefit when an employee is able to safely report an employer’s improper or even illegal activities. That is why employees are legally protected from being terminated in retaliation for reporting illegal activities in the workplace.
It is illegal for an employer to terminate or demote an employee in response to reporting a workplace injury, for filing a Labor and Industries (L&I) claim, or for making safety complaints about unsafe activities observed in the workplace. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for exercising a legal right such as voting or reporting for jury duty. It is also illegal for an employer to terminate an employee because that employee refused to do something illegal, such as file a fraudulent tax return or lie on an insurance claim.
