Retaliation

Sacramento Retaliation Attorney

Workplace retaliation refers to an employer taking an adverse employment action (demoting, suspending, terminating, etc.) or engaging in discriminatory behavior against an employee because the employee complained about sexual harassment, unlawful employment practices, health and safety code violations, fraud, or other illegal activities in the workplace.

How to Tell if You Are a Victim of Workplace Retaliation

In California, workplace retaliation happens when an employer engages in career-damaging actions against an employee who participated in a protected activity. Workplace retaliation can manifest itself in a variety of actions that vary in severity. Some types of retaliation are obvious, such as wrongful termination or wrongful constructive termination – i.e. when an employer strives to make you resign by making your work conditions intolerable.

Other forms of workplace retaliation are less blatant and can be more challenging to spot. Signs that you are a victim of retaliation include:

  • Your workload has been increased
  • You are switched to a less desirable shift
  • You start receiving negative performance reviews
  • Your supervisors make it difficult to perform your job
  • You are excluded from meetings and company correspondence
  • You are subject to illegitimate disciplinary action
  • You are denied access to resources for career advancement
  • You are denied a promotion or raise
  • You are given an unsatisfactory job reference

Remedies that you can Recover

In a workplace retaliation case, you can receive compensation for a variety of damages. These damages include:

  • Economic damages for compensation that you would have received had you not been retaliated against
  • Emotional distress damages for the pain and suffering that you were forced to endure as a result of the retaliatory conduct
  • Punitive damages in order to punish the wrongdoer. Punitive damages are not typically awarded. However, they can be if the Court or a jury determines that a managing agent of the employer acted with malice, oppression or fraud
  • Attorneys Fees and Costs. If you win a retaliation lawsuit, your attorney may be entitled to his/her attorney fees and costs associated with litigating your case
