In the United States, employees, former employees, and beneficiaries, are protected from denial of employer-provided disability, medical, retirement and other benefit claims by ERISA under federal law in the private sector, and under state law for public or other types of ERISA-exempted benefit plans.

Wisconsin employees are protected from harassment in the workplace by both Wisconsin state law, Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA), and federal laws, such as Title VII and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

It is illegal for an employer to terminate, discipline, demote, or harass an employee because an employee complained or participated in an investigation about discrimination, harassment, or illegal practices.

Wisconsin’s Workers’ Compensation laws cover accidents and disease-causing injuries that arise out of an employee’s employment.
