    Can you be fired for filing a non-discrimination related complaint against your supervisor?

  • #2
    Yes.

    Retaliation is only illegal when it is related to a right protected under the law. Complaining about your supervisor, when it does not relate to illegal discrimination/harassment or another legal violation, is NOT protected under the law.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      OK. So I'm clear...filing a complaint using company approved grievance procedures can be used to fire you. Correct?

        Unless it relates to a right protected under the law, yes, that is correct.

        The sole exception would be if a legally binding contract or CBA expressly and in so many words says otherwise.
