Numerous courts have held that assigning an employee a lower performing territory or accounts constitutes an adverse action. See, e.g., McArdle v. Dell Prods., L.P., 293 Fed. App’x 331, 337-38 (5th Cir. 2008) (stating the plaintiff suffered an adverse action where a single lucrative and desirable account was taken away and replaced with less profitable accounts); Richmond v. Gen. Nutrition Ctrs., No. 08-cv-3577, 2011 WL 2493527, *10 (S.D.N.Y. June 22, 2011) (holding a jury could find the plaintiff suffered an adverse action when he was transferred to a store with a lower volume of sales, resulting in a loss of potential commissions).
