Examples Of Retaliation In The Workplace

Employer retaliation is all too common, especially in today's economy. Examples of employer retaliation include being given fewer hours, being assigned to dangerous duties or a dangerous location, being demoted, being fired, or other punishing conduct by your employer solely because you attempted to enforce your legal rights, helped a co-worker assert their legal rights, or reported what you believed to be illegal activity by the company. Fortunately, California and Federal employment laws prohibit employers from retaliating against workers in many circumstances. Listed below are just a few examples of circumstances that may have prompted your employer to retaliate against you:

  • You filed a workers' compensation claim or attempted to file a workers' compensation claim
  • You took a leave for pregnancy, a leave for a disability or a leave for a family emergency
  • You reported illegal behavior by your employer, such as unpaid overtime or no breaks, or you reported a dangerous workplace condition
  • You complained of racial discrimination or sexual harassment or any other type of discrimination going on at work
  • You testified in support of a co-worker's complaint of discrimination or harassment, or you helped a co-worker to report it
  • You cooperated with a state or federal investigation involving the company you work for, or that you used to work for
