Howard Law, PC represents individual employees and workers involved in class action lawsuits that have endured workplace retaliation and are seeking recovery. Retaliation in the workplace can occur when an employee is being punished by an employer for standing up to unlawful discrimination or harassment. In California, it is illegal for any employee or class of employees who complain about possible harassment, sexual harassment, or discrimination in the workplace, to be subjected to retaliation. It is also against the law for colleagues or coworkers who help other employees file a harassment or discrimination complaint to be retaliated against.
Our knowledgeable attorneys at Howard Law, PC, work aggressively to protect employees who have been retaliated against because of protesting, complaining, or resisting harassment and discrimination based on age, sex, race, national origin, religion, and disability, among other characteristics. We also specialize in defending employees who have suffered retaliation due to filing wage and hour complaints, worker’s compensation claims, employee benefit issues, and health and safety complaints in the workplace.
Common forms of retaliation in the workplace can include:
- Wrongful termination
- Pay cuts
- Unfavorable job assignments
- Job suspension
It is also against the law for an employer to engage in retaliation against an employee for refusing to violate laws and for whistle-blowing—reporting unlawful employer conduct and violations of any state or federal law to a government or law enforcement agency.
As California Labor and Employment Lawyers, we boast an extensive knowledge of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and other state and federal laws that protect employees who have either suffered or witnessed workplace harassment and discriminatory practices and have been retaliated against.
