Worker Retaliation Lawyers | Here to Fight for Justice

Are you a victim of retaliation in the workplace? If so, you should understand that you don’t have to face it on your own. The knowledgeable and experienced Los Angeles employment lawyers from our legal team are here to fight for you, every step of the way.

Examples of Retaliation in the Workplace

Worker retaliation can come in a variety of forms, but it can be loosely defined as when an employer or another “higher-up” within a company takes adverse action against an employee solely because that employee exercised their right to report injustice and unethical behavior in the workplace. Some of the most common examples of retaliation that we see are as follows:

  • Demotion for reporting discrimination
  • Reassignment after filing a harassment complaint
  • Pay reduction after requesting accommodations
  • Isolation after raising safety concerns
  • Shift changes following protected activity
  • Unfair treatment after taking medical leave
  • Negative performance reviews post-complaint
  • Unwanted scrutiny for reporting misconduct
  • Ostracism after participating in union activities

Filing Your Claim

If you believe you were unfairly retaliated against, you should do what you can to document the incident(s) of retaliation and, from there, reach out to a competent California worker retaliation lawyer who can file your claim either with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Recovering Compensation

As long as your retaliation claim is successful, meaning you can prove that your employer retaliated against you for exercising your lawfully-recognized rights, you may receive compensation for the following:

  • Back pay: reimbursement for your lost wages
  • Reinstatement: returning to your previous position
  • Front pay: future income compensation
  • Damages: emotional distress or harm compensation
  • Attorney fees: legal expenses reimbursement
