Protecting Los Angeles County Employees from Workplace Retaliation
Federal and state protections against workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, and other illegal actions taken by employers would not do much good if an employer could retaliate against an employee for reporting the prohibited behavior. Employees should be able to bring their concerns to their employer without fear of retaliation.
At Limonjyan Law Group, our retaliation lawyer is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees and will hold employers accountable for workplace retaliation.
If you believe that you have been punished for opposing illegal conduct at work, call our offices at (213) 377-6707.
Did You Experience Retaliation at Work During the COVID-19 Pandemic?
Many things changed when COVID-19 began to spread across the world. You may have lost your employment or faced another consequence at work during this time, but could it have been due to retaliation?
With such a large focus on safety at work from basic procedures to the availability of employer-provided personal protective equipment (PPE), there are many things your employer could have done wrong during this time. Whistleblowers who point out deficiencies in the health and safety conditions at work are protected by federal law from retaliation of any kind from their employer.
That means you should not have experienced any kind of mistreatment or consequence at work for bringing up concerns about the lack of cleaning supplies, PPE, use of masks, social distancing, or any other health and safety concern related to the COVID-19 pandemic
If you spoke up about a health or safety issue at work and were fired, had your hours cut, or were otherwise reprimanded as a result, reach out to our retaliation lawyer for assistance!
What Does Employer Retaliation Look Like?
Workplace retaliation can take many forms, including:
- Pay cuts
- Other conduct designed to make employees uncomfortable about reporting prohibited behavior
Employees should feel that they can complain about discrimination and harassment without facing punishment from their employer. Workplace protections also extend to whistleblowers who report on fraudulent or other illegal actions carried out by people in positions of authority. If an adverse action has been taken against you for asserting your rights as an employee, it is important to seek advice from a skilled lawyer as soon as possible.
Is Workplace Retaliation Illegal?
All retaliation is illegal in the state of California. Relaliation is any negative consequence against an employee with actions such as sexual harassment and racial discrimination. If this happens, an employee may file a wrongful termination/retaliation lawsuit to compensate for their lost wages or damages they may have endured.
