Southern California Retaliation Claim Attorneys
Many people are hesitant to complain about discrimination, sexual harassment, illegal activities, or other wrongs in the workplace because they are afraid their employer will fire or demote them. You are protected from employment retaliation, however, by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.
If your employer retaliates against you for exercising your rights under California or federal law, you should contact our Orange County law firm to schedule a free and confidential case evaluation as soon as possible with a Southern California retaliation claim attorney. You may be entitled to compensation, policy changes, and other remedies.
There are many types of employment activities that are protected under California law:
- Reporting sexual harassment claims at work
- Reporting age, sex, race, nationally, religious or other types of discrimination claims
- Reporting an illegal act (such as over-billing the government). This is also known as whistleblower protection.
- Engaging in union activities
A typical employment retaliation claim may include transferring and demoting someone because they complained about a sexually hostile work environment to their human resources department.
