Know Your Rights: Retaliation in the Workplace

Experiencing retaliation in the workplace after reporting discrimination is unjust and unlawful. It compounds the harm already inflicted and creates a hostile work environment. Finding a legal advocate who will stand up for your rights is essential to address such retaliation effectively.

California Law Protects Against Retaliation
California laws, including the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), prohibit employers from retaliating against employees who report or complain about discrimination. This protection extends to applicants as well. Employers cannot take negative employment actions, such as termination, demotion, or suspension, in response to a good faith report or complaint regarding unlawful discrimination based on a protected category.
