Workplace Retaliation: Understanding Your Rights

In the modern workplace, employees deserve respect, fairness, and dignity. Unfortunately, not all work environments align with these ideals. 

Many individuals face retaliation in the workplace. Here at Freeburg & Granieri, we understand the complexities of retaliation in the workplace and are here to guide you through it.

What Constitutes Retaliation?

Retaliation in the workplace occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee for engaging in legally protected activity. This can include filing a complaint about discrimination, reporting unsafe working conditions, requesting a reasonable accommodation for a known disability, or even taking legally permitted medical leave. 

It's crucial to differentiate retaliation from other workplace conflicts or disciplinary actions. Retaliation specifically targets individuals for exercising their rights under the law.

Your Rights Under the Law

Federal and state laws provide protection against retaliation in the workplace. California Fair Employment and Housing Act, California Labor Code, and the California Family Rights Act are just a few examples. 

Understanding your rights empowers you to take action against unlawful retaliation. Our team is here to guide you through the legal complexities and ensure you receive the justice you deserve.

Recognizing Retaliation Tactics

Retaliation in the workplace often operates in covert ways, making it challenging to detect. It can manifest subtly, such as exclusion from meetings or unexplained increases in workload. However, our seasoned legal team is adept at identifying these tactics and devising effective strategies to address them.

The Importance of Speaking Up

Remember, silence is not your friend when facing retaliation. By speaking up and seeking legal recourse, you not only protect your rights, but also pave the way for a more just workplace for everyone. Do not let fear or intimidation hold you back - take the first step towards justice today.
