Illegal retaliation occurs when an employer subjects an employee to an adverse employment action for engaging in protected activity. Such protected activity can include an employee complaining about illegal discrimination or harassment, reporting illegal activity either to the employer or law enforcement, or complaining about an employer failing to pay overtime wages.

Employees have the right to register complaints against their employer or supervisor for any of the aforementioned reasons. It is illegal for an employer to “strike back,” so to speak, by enacting negative employment action against the employee.

If you have been retaliated against at work for committing a legally protected activity, you may have grounds to bring a lawsuit against your employer or supervisor. At Reisman & Reisman, we can pursue compensation for what you’ve lost and fight for justice on your behalf.

Employer Retaliation Is Prohibited by Law.

According to California state and federal laws, it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee because the employee engaged in protected activity. Actionable retaliation usually involves a termination; however, it may also involve other adverse employment actions such as demotion.

For example, an employee registers a complaint about their supervisor sexually harassing them. That supervisor would be committing illegal retaliation if they responded to the complaint by firing or demoting the employee as a form of “payback.”

An employee may not be fired in retaliation for engaging in protected activity, such as the following:

  • Reporting illegal discrimination in the workplace
  • Reporting illegal harassment in the workplace
  • Refusing to engage in illegal activity
  • Reporting illegal activity in the workplace to the employer or to law enforcement
