California law makes it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee for opposing or complaining about unlawful discrimination, harassment, retaliation, unlawful wage and hour practices, violations of health and safety laws (i.e. OSHA), or any other violation of California or federal law or regulations in the workplace.
An employer may not retaliate against an employee who opposed or complained about potential unlawful conduct so long as that employee had a good faith reason to believe that the unlawful conduct had occurred, even if ultimately it is determined that the conduct complained about did not violate the law.
You cannot be retaliated against for reporting your employer’s illegal conduct to the state or federal government. You also cannot be retaliated against for refusing to participate in your employer’s illegal conduct.
Employers are also required to engage in a good faith interactive process with applicants and employees in order to accommodate known disabilities. If your doctor has prescribed you work restrictions, your employer has to work with you to determine if those restrictions can be accommodated. Your employer cannot retaliate against you or terminate your employment because you have requested a disability accommodation. Call Freeburg & Granieri, APC to speak with one of our attorneys if you believe that you have been treated illegally because of a disability.
Employees who blow the whistle by reporting violations of state and federal rules, regulations, and laws are protected from retaliation by their employers. If you are a whistleblower who has been retaliated against because of your complaint, call us today.
