EEOC law for university officials

Post

An employer may not fire, demote, harass or otherwise "retaliate" against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in a discrimination proceeding, or otherwise opposing discrimination. The same laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability, as well as wage differences between men and women performing substantially equal work, also prohibit retaliation against individuals who oppose unlawful discrimination or participate in an employment discrimination proceeding.

In addition to the protections against retaliation that are included in all of the laws enforced by EEOC, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) also protects individuals from coercion, intimidation, threat, harassment, or interference in their exercise of their own rights or their encouragement of someone else's exercise of rights granted by the ADA.

There are three main terms that are used to describe retaliation. Retaliation occurs when an employer, employment agency, or labor organization takes an adverse action against a covered individual because he or she engaged in a protected activity. These three terms are described below.

is this about the prof that got fired?

Just because he may have participated in a previous claim does not make his firing retaliatory. If he was not performing or underperforming in his role his prior allegations do not make him untouchable.

It usually has to do with the amount of time after the claim when the firing took place right?  Fire employee a week later = trouble, fire 6 months later = ok?

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
