The NLRB, the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division, OSHA, and the EEOC have issued a joint fact sheet explaining that the agencies will protect all employees from retaliation by employers because the employee has tried to assert his or her workplace rights, according to NLRB Memorandum OM 17-10. The fact sheet, “Retaliation Based on Exercise of Workplace Rights Is Unlawful,” notes that in some cases, employers may exploit immigration status to discourage workers from asserting their rights. Federal laws, however, including the National Labor Relations Act, generally prohibit employers from retaliating against workers for exercising their workplace rights, regardless of the workers’ immigration status.

The new fact sheet is available in Spanish at, and in French, Mandarin, Arabic, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Tagalog, Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Haitian Creole, Hmong, and Portuguese on the Agency’s Foreign Language Publications page at
