Los Angeles Retaliation Attorney

When an employee in California makes a complaint about discrimination or harassment, or comes forward about unsafe work conditions or illegal activity in the workplace, they should be protected. However, there are times when an employer retaliates against workers who come forward. At Rise Law Firm, our Los Angeles retaliation attorneys are here to help if you have experienced a hostile work environment or even termination after making a complaint about discrimination, harassment, unfair wage practices, unsafe working conditions, and more.

Why choose Rise Law Firm to help?

  • We take retaliation cases on a contingency fee basis, which means our clients pay no legal fees until we secure a favorable settlement verdict on their behalf.

What will an attorney do for this case?

It can be difficult for an employee who has experienced retaliation to prove their case. However, a workplace retaliation attorney will have the resources and experience necessary to uncover evidence of the retaliation. This could include obtaining all documents related to the retaliation and gathering witness statements that prove what happened.

An employer will handle any negotiations between the employer and the worker in an effort to recover the compensation the employee is entitled to.

Why do employers retaliate against workers?

There are various reasons that an employer may retaliate against a worker. Retaliatory actions could take place if the employee reported or complained about the following:

  • illegal or fraudulent activity by the employer
  • refusing to engage in fraudulent or unlawful activities
  • reporting wage violations
  • reporting instances of discrimination or harassment in the workplace
  • assisting other workers with complaints or lawsuits about illegal activity

The same laws that protect employees from these types of workplace behaviors also protect employees from retaliation by their employer. US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and California labor agencies provide strong protections for employees against retaliation in these situations.

Sometimes, retaliation results in outright wrongful termination from a job. However, retaliation can also include the following:

  • increased workloads for the employee
  • demotions from their job
  • an unwarranted decrease in salary
  • denial of raises or promotions
  • negative performance reviews
  • unfavorable job relocations or shift assignments
  • leaving an employee out of training opportunities
  • and more
