When an employee is fired, demoted, suspended, or otherwise experiences some form of retaliation in response to a legally protected complaint or action, that employee may be able to pursue a retaliation claim. Retaliation is an unacceptable response to employee actions and employers should be held accountable for this unlawful activity.
If you have experienced retaliation in the workplace, it's important to speak with a Orange County employment law attorney who can fight on your behalf. It can be intimidating to go up against your employer who is the source of income. However, you need to assert your rights and seek compensation.
What is Employer Retaliation?
Employees are protected from retaliation due to reporting discrimination, harassment, or for refusal to participate in illegal activities. Retaliation law also protects employees from retaliation due to union activity, sick or maternity leave, workers compensation claims and whistleblowing.
Some examples of workplace retaliation include:
- Unsubstantiated negative performance reviews
- Unreasonably increased workload
- Denial of promotions or raises
- Denial of ongoing training
- Perpetuating incorrect information about the employee
- Physical or verbal abuse in the workplace
