California law and federal law allow workers to report employers for suspected wrongdoing and to cooperate with investigators looking into various forms of misconduct without fear of being retaliated against by their employers. Unfortunately, not all employers obey the law.
Have you been in some capacity mistreated by an employer after blowing the whistle on safety violations, reporting sexual misconduct, or simply agreeing to answer the questions of investigators looking into violations at your workplace? If so, you may have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit accordingly.
Discuss your case with a lawyer for more information about your legal options. A Long Beach retaliation attorney at the Rager Law Firm will go over your case’s details and explain what the appropriate next step may be.
There are various ways in which an employer may illegally retaliate against an employee who has reported issues in the workplace. The following are just a few noteworthy examples:
Don’t worry if you’re unsure whether your employer’s behavior violates California’s employment laws. A Long Beach retaliation lawyer can answer any questions you may have about this topic.
Your goals when taking legal action after being the victim of retaliation can vary depending on the specific way in which an employer retaliated against you. For example, if you lost your job due to being a whistleblower, you might file a claim or lawsuit to seek reinstatement. Or, you could seek financial compensation if the manner in which you retaliated caused you to endure significant economic hardship.
Those are just a few examples. Regardless, proving that an employer didn’t have a valid reason to fire you, deny you a promotion, or otherwise subject you to mistreatment can be challenging if you lack the necessary expertise.
