Is Your Employer Retaliating Against You For Standing Up For Your Rights?
Under California employment laws, California is considered an at-will state. Unless there is a binding employment contract in place, employers may hire, retain and terminate employees for no reason, or any reason, as long as the reason is not illegal. Likewise, an employee is free to leave employment at any time without penalty. It does NOT mean, however, that an employer has the right to fire a worker in retaliation for reporting workplace violations, discrimination or harassment.
The Law Offices of Eric A. Boyajian, in Glendale, California, aggressively represents workers who have been terminated, demoted or face other types of negative job-related consequences out of retaliation for standing up for their rights.
Examples of Adverse Employment Actions taken in Retaliation include:
- Demotion or transfer
- Subjecting the employee to a hostile work environment, in the hopes they will quit
- Decrease in income or withholding earned bonuses and commission due
- Assigning you tasks that are inconsistent with your disability or medical work restrictions
