The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) provides protection for employees who have experienced retaliation after blowing the whistle on an employer for discriminatory conduct or engaging in other activity protected under the statute. Your employer cannot retaliate against you by terminating you, demoting you or harassing you. If you believe you were a victim of retaliation, speak to a knowledgeable attorney in Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County or Santa Cruz at Venardi Zurada LLP. Call 925-937-3900 or contact us online to schedule a initial consultation.
Employer Retaliation Attorneys
Similar to whistleblower claims, retaliation claims provide protection for employees who have brought unfavorable attention to an employer’s wrong-doings. FEHA retaliation laws specifically pertain to the areas of discrimination and harassment.
If you blew the whistle on your employer for its discriminatory or harassing acts against you or another employee, you have rights and you deserve protection.
Following a whistleblower action, your employer cannot:
- Fire or demote you
- Change the conditions of your work to limit your income or promotion potential
- Give you a bad performance review or put you on an unwarranted performance improvement plan (PIP)
- Threaten or harass you
- Create a hostile work environment by turning other employees against you
No matter what job title you had, if you were wrongfully terminated after blowing the whistle on your employer, speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. At Venardi Zurada LLP, we will fight to have your position reinstated and to obtain financial compensation for lost wages and other damages.
