It is unlawful for employers to retaliate against employees for reporting harassment, discrimination, safety violations, fraud and other illegal activities. It is also unlawful for employers to retaliate against employees for taking medical leave. Nonetheless, workplace retaliation is all too common across California.
If your employer has retaliated against you, the attorneys at California Employment Counsel, APC, are here to stand up for your rights. Our experienced employment lawyers can give you the knowledgeable guidance you need to navigate this sensitive legal issue.
Retaliation Takes Many Forms
A common form of workplace retaliation is wrongful termination, but employers retaliate in many ways against employees who have reported unlawful activities. Retaliation may include:
- Unfavorable reassignment
- Negative performance review
- Workplace harassment
Most employees who have been targeted for retaliatory discharge do not even know it. The employer is watching, however, and will use any excuse to fire the employee. Don’t let this happen to you. Consult with an experienced employment law attorney to learn more about your rights.
