The state of California has a number of laws which are there to safeguard the rights of employees and to protect them against any forms of discrimination or Workplace retaliation. Yet, there are instances where employees have been victims of retaliatory actions as they had been involved in legally-protected activities. Employees who have been victimized by their employers, for being involved in activities which are upheld by the law, can file a retaliation claim against their employer.
What do you mean by Workplace Retaliation?
The Labor codes protect the rights of workers or employee who come out and to speak against discrimination or harassment at workplaces. Employees who are involved in investigations related to the workplace or who are whistle blowers are protected against termination or mistreatment by the employers. There are instances where the employers knowingly demote or not give raises to such employees or transfer them to undesirable departments or locations.
These type of illegal practices by the employers fall under workplace retaliation, and can be challenged by a retaliation claim. The basic rule is that if any kind of negative action from the employer which deters an employee from speaking out or lodging a complaint, legally it can be claimed to be workplace retaliation.
