Los Angeles Retaliation by Employer Attorneys
Skilled Employment Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights
Employees are protected from employer retaliation by a variety of statutes, as well as the common law doctrine of wrongful termination in violation of public policy. If you complained about discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, or unlawful activity in the workplace and your employer retaliated against you, call Feldman Browne Olivares. Our retaliation by employer lawyers in Los Angeles can help you determine if your rights were violated and whether you are entitled to compensation.
Retaliation for Discrimination Complaints
If you complained about discrimination due to race, age, disability, gender, age, or another protected class and your employer retaliated against you for making a complaint, the employer is in violation of the law. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) which prohibits discrimination also prohibits retaliation against an employee for making a complaint.
