Retaliation After Filing A Complaint About Harassment Isn’t Legal

We have often discussed how employees should never have to deal with sexual harassment. All forms of sexual harassment at work are illegal. Despite that fact, some employees still deal with the harassment just because they don’t feel comfortable reporting it. Some employees think they will be retaliated against for making complaints about harassment. What those employees might not realize is that there are protections for whistleblowers on both the federal and state levels of the law.

We don’t want you to have to deal with harassment, and we don’t want you to worry about retaliation. If you need to file a complaint about sexual harassment or if you have been retaliated against because you filed a complaint, let us help you. We can work with you to find out what happened and to help you learn your options for proceeding.

No matter what form of sexual harassment you were subjected to and no matter what manner of retaliation you were a victim of, we can help you. If you were treated unfairly after filing a complaint, you might have a claim regarding retaliation. If you were demoted, fired, given unfavorable assignments or had a cut in pay after filing a complaint for sexual harassment, we can look into your case.

All adverse treatment after you make a complaint about sexual harassment should be scrutinized. While you aren’t covered for actions resulting in legitimate disciplinary actions, you are protected for adverse reactions that are done simply as a way to punish you because you filed a complaint. Let us help you determine if you have a case and how to proceed if you do have a valid claim under California law.
