Employer Retaliation: Protecting The Rights Of Employees
State and federal laws provide protection to employees from employer retaliation. Employers are prohibited from retaliating or harassing workers who have filed a complaint, assisted with a regulatory or criminal investigation concerning their employer, or for asserting their rights under the law.
At Ceartas Legal LLP, our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of employees throughout Southern California. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve if you have been harmed by retaliatory actions taken by your employer. To learn more, schedule a consultation by calling our lawyers at 619-374-7389.
You Are Allowed To Assert Your Rights In The Workplace
The law provides employees with more rights than they may think. An employer may not take adverse action against you for asserting your rights in the workplace. Some legally protected rights include:
- Asking for reasonable disability accommodations
- Requesting or taking family or medical leave
- Demanding mandatory rest and/or meal breaks
- Reporting instances of sexual harassment or discrimination to your employer
It is rare that an employer will tell you that you are being demoted or fired for stating your rights. Oftentimes an employer will provide some sort of pretext for what is, in fact, workplace retaliation. That is why it is important to seek help from experienced attorneys. With more than 25 years of experience practicing employment law in California, we are dedicated to helping you hold your employer accountable for illegal actions in the workplace.
