Am I protected for reporting harassment of my subordinate? 10-08-2008

As an administrator in a school, I reported to my supervisor that a teacher was being harassed by another administrator. My supervisor did nothing, and the teacher is now filing suit. Retaliation against me has begun by suggestions that I have not fulfilled my job duties in other areas, etc. What is the law about retaliation against a "whistle-blower" in cases such as these?

Rita Risser Replies:

You are fully protected by federal and state laws. In addition, if you are a union member, the union should be supporting you. Immediately get an attorney to assist you. Thank you for doing the right thing. Best of luck to you.
