Thank you for your patience; I have tried to find some exemption but unfortunately I cannot -for a few reasons;
first, retaliation requires:
1. engaging in protected conduct (such as discrimination issues, minimum wage issues, etc)
2. an adverse action by the employer
3. and a causal relationship- which requires termination or a demotion; so if a person quits, even reluctantly, that is not sufficient to meet the criteria. Even verbal retaliation by the employer does not constitute retaliation.
Harassment is a different cause of action but that too requires harassment due to a particular defined category-ie. harassment due to sexual harassment, discrimination, or other protected category.
So while the situation of harassment and retaliation is unfair and immoral, it is only afforded legal protection if it falls within a protected category. I'm sorry as I'm sure this is not the information you were wishing to hear but I have an ethical obligation to provide accurate information.
