Challenge of Addressing Retaliation
Retaliation and its impact on employees is a serious issue for organizations yet it is often difficult to resolve. Retaliation rates are climbing and studies show 35% of employees fear retaliation from employers. This impacts corporate culture and worker productivity and may ultimately lead to monetary fines in retaliation cases.
Managers in many cases may not even realize that they are retaliating against employees. They may believe they are being impartial while employees notice even subtle changes in behavior. Or they may see a whistleblower not as a contributing employee but as an obstacle to meeting departmental goals.
