Companies Fear Regulation. So, They Retaliate.Most places we work, eat, entertain and sleep have specific regulations that must be followed. Whether restaurants must have one ServSafe certified food handler, or entire factories must be OSHA compliant and ISO certified, regulation means expenses. As many of our Riverside retaliation cases suggest, many businesses either prefer to ignore regulatory requests, and simply thrive in hostility. Or hate spending money. Here at Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers, our vast experience in litigating against companies who retaliate against employees for bringing unsafe or unethical concerns into public view allows us to handle cases such as:
- Excessive disciplinary action stemming from employee(s) who alerts EEOC of discriminatory hiring practices.
- Cutting off employee benefits, even docking pay, for alerting SEC investigators of potential insider trading practices.
- Giving negative performance evaluations because employee started a petition to present changes to corporate policy.
- Firing employees, then giving purposely negative references, because employee stood up for another being bullied.
