Victim Of Unlawful Workplace Retaliation As An Employee?

As an employee in California, you have important work-related rights. You are entitled to take action when your employer violates those rights. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for doing so.

If you’ve faced employee retaliation, you may have grounds for a legal claim. Attorney Jasmin Gill at J. Gill Law Group, P.C., can stand up for you. She is an experienced attorney for employees throughout the state of California. She is passionate about seeking justice for workers who have suffered mistreatment.

Employment Retaliation: What It Is and Why It Is Unlawful

Retaliation refers to any adverse employment action in response to the exercise of your rights. That action might involve:

  • Firing you or wrongfully terminating your employment
  • Assigning you to less desirable job duties
  • Excluding you from promotions or other employment opportunities
  • Transferring you to a less desirable position or department
  • Making you work longer hours or under tougher conditions
  • Taking disciplinary action against you
  • Reducing your wages or benefits
  • Harassing you, subjecting you to a hostile work environment or treating you poorly

To prove retaliation, you must show that:

  • You engaged in a “protected activity or activities” – for example, reporting unlawful discrimination, taking legal action to collect unpaid wages, or serving as a whistleblower to report unsafe or unlawful working conditions
  • Your employer subjected you to an adverse employment action because of your protected activities

Attorney Jasmin Gill has extensive experience handling these cases and knows how to prove these elements.

Your Options For Legal Action

Through legal action, you can obtain various forms of compensation, reinstatement and additional monetary awards. The right legal path will depend on your circumstances. You may need to file a complaint with the appropriate state and federal administrative agencies before pursuing a lawsuit.
