49-207. Discrimination prohibited

A. No person may intimidate, threaten, restrain, coerce, blacklist, terminate or in any manner discriminate against any person because that person has filed a complaint or instituted, or caused to be instituted, a proceeding under this chapter or has testified or is about to testify in such a proceeding or has exercised, on behalf of himself or others, any right or protection afforded by this chapter.

If, after investigation, the attorney general determines that this section has been violated, he may bring an action in superior court against any alleged violator.

C. In an action brought under this section, the court has jurisdiction to restrain a violation and order any appropriate relief, including rehiring or reinstatement of a person, with back pay and double damages.
