Boys and Girls Club Faces Retaliation Suit

Comments Off

The former head of a local Boys & Girls Club filed a “retaliation” lawsuit alleging that she was wrongfully terminated after reporting that the organization had inflated the number of children enrolled in its programs in order to obtain hundreds of thousands of dollars from the federal government. All federal employment statutes contain an anti-retaliation provision that is designed to protect employees who seek to protect their rights. These provisions prohibit an employer from retaliating against an employee in many fashions, including dismissal, suspension, or any other material adverse action.
