Retaliation at the Workplace
Speak with our Woodland Hills Employment Lawyers Today
When employees notice that their employers may be engaging in unsavory or even illegal activity, they may hesitate to go to the authorities in fear of their own standing in the workplace. If they take action against an employer, who will protect them when the employer realizes who spoke out against them? Many workers don't realize, however, that the law protects them in these circumstances and that this form of vengeful misconduct from employers, call retaliation, is often grounds for legal action.

Substantiating Workplace Retaliation
Often, it is difficult for employees to know for certain they have been retaliated against. This is because most employers know to produce an auxiliary reason for taking action against the employee in question. These reasons, however, are just excuses and it takes diligent representation to collect the necessary evidence and testimony to compellingly put forth a retaliation claim.
Retaliation can take many forms, including:
- Reassignment to a different department or shift
- Denial of raises or promotions
In some cases, an employee speaking to the authorities about an employer's wrongdoing will be protected under whistleblower laws. Our firm can assist you in these circumstances and ensure that your rights and interests are thoroughly asserted before the law.
