Standing Up For Employees Suffering Workplace Retaliation
It is natural to feel a certain degree of fear after reporting wrongdoing in the workplace. However, it’s important for employees to know that their employer cannot retaliate against them for reporting a problem. In fact, if you do experience retaliation, you may have a legal claim against your employer.
Did your employer retaliate against you for reporting wrongdoing? Were you fired because you blew the whistle? At Bohbot & Riles, PC, we can evaluate whether you have a case to pursue. With 40 years of collective legal experience, our lawyers know that putting your needs before our goals is the surest path to success.
Your Employer Cannot Fire You For An Illegal Reason
California is an at-will employment state, meaning your employer can fire you for any reason or for no reason at all. This does not mean your employer can fire you for an illegal reason. If you suspect your termination was illegal, your employer may have wrongfully terminated you.
Our lawyers represent people who have been wrongfully terminated for:
- Reporting discriminatory remarks or conduct
- Reporting sexual misconduct or harassment
- Reporting an employer’s failure to provide reasonable accommodations
- Reporting an employer’s noncompliance with FMLA
- Reporting nonpayment of overtime, and other wage and hour issues
- Reporting any type of illegal activity in the workplace
Retaliation does not always result in termination. We also handle retaliation claims involving demotion, decrease in pay or benefits, job location transfer, shift transfer and more. If you have suffered workplace retaliation, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages and benefits, as well as other losses.
