Can a township employer discipline or terminate an employee who makes a false accusation of discrimination or hrassment?

Employees should not be subject to discipline or termination for filing a complaint in good faith. In other words, if the employee had a legitimate belief that discrimination or harassment occurred, they should not be retaliated against even if their complaint is not substantiated in an investigation. If the employer has overwhelming evidence that an employee filed a complaint and knew that the allegations were false, then discipline up to and including termination are appropriate.
