Coast Guard Anti-Retaliation
Stop Retaliation Before it Starts
The Coast Guard Anti-Retaliation Campaign is a Service-wide initiative to educate the workforce about retaliation and the importance of preventing and opposing it. Retaliation occurs when an employer takes action against an employee for engaging in legally protected Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) or Equal Opportunity (EO) activity such as reporting discrimination and harassment or participating in an investigation of harassment. The campaign also increases awareness for both supervisory and non-supervisory personnel about what retaliation is, what their rights and responsibilities are, how to address a suspected retaliation occurrence, how to access more information and assistance, and more.
