What Is The Labor Standards Retaliation Law?

Under Section 111.31­111.395 of the Wisconsin Statutes an employer is prohibited from retaliating against any employee who files a complaint, attempts to enforce a right permitted by statute, or testifies in a case, or assists in a case under the state's labor standards laws such as child labor, minimum wage, hours of work and overtime, wage payment and collection, and prevailing wage rate laws. The law's protections also apply if an employer takes an adverse employment action against the employee because that employer believes the employee has exercised any of the above rights.
