Iowa Violence in the Workplace: What you need to know

Employers may not discharge, fail to promote, or reduce an employee's wages or benefits for actual time worked because the employee was a witness in a criminal proceeding or was a plaintiff, defendant, or witness in a domestic abuse civil proceeding. An employer that violates the law commits a simple misdemeanor. An employee whose employer violates this section is entitled to recover damages including but are not limited to, actual damages, court costs, and reasonable attorney fees. The employee may also petition the court for a cease and desist order against the employer and for reinstatement (Iowa Code Sec. 915.23).
