It’s an unfortunate fact that a significant number of workplaces despise employees who look to enforce their rights or the rights of their co-workers. Instead, they illegal behavior or actions. Fortunately, workers personally victimized by or unwilling to condone this sort of misbehavior may seek justice by reporting illegal workplace behavior to the relevant authorities.
Of course, that it the right thing to do but it is also a potentially dangerous thing to do. Employees who choose this option can easily damage their professional relationship with their bosses and supervisors, who may decide to retaliate against an employee for their perceived disloyalty. Often this punishment takes the form of job termination, demotion, loss of pay or benefits, or negative evaluations. Retribution of this nature is illegal.
