Unlawful Retaliation Lawyers in Los Angeles Helping Employees Recover Compensation

You are probably aware of the fact that there are laws that protect employees from workplace discrimination and harassment. It’s important to be aware of the fact that these same laws also prohibit employees from retaliating against employees from making internal or external complaints regarding harassment and discrimination or participating in an investigation. For this reason, if you think that you have been subjected to unlawful retaliation, it’s critical that you speak to an attorney as soon as you can.

Unlawful Retaliation in California

Retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse employment action against an employee for participating in legally protected activity. Retaliation can be overt, such as termination or a reduction in pay, but it can also be more subtle, such as passing you up for a promotion or assigning you less desirable job duties.

What to Do If You Suspect Unlawful Retaliation

If you suspect that your employer is retaliating against you for engaging in protected activity, you should first speak to your supervisor or human resources representative. If they cannot provide a legitimate reason for retaliatory conduct, it’s important that you document the retaliation and make sure that you can show that it started after you complained about harassment or discrimination or participated in an investigation.
