“Retaliation” has a very specific legal meaning in employment law. Your Employer is prohibited from taking adverse action against you because you complained about discrimination or objected to discriminatory treatment.
Pursuing a retaliation claim requires going through the administrative process at either the EEOC or the CCRD. You are not required to have attorney representation for this process, but in order to have the best chance of reaping the possible benefits, we recommend it in most situations.
