Employees in California have many important legal rights under state and federal law. These rights are critical to maintaining the power balance between companies and employees.

What Constitutes Retaliation?
Adverse employment actions can happen for many reasons, though they might be retaliatory if they are in response to any of the following:
- Complaining of sexual harassment
- Complaining of unlawful discrimination
- Complaining of unpaid wages or labor law violations
- Reporting unethical or unlawful behavior to the authorities or government
- Participating in an investigation of unlawful conduct
- Refusing to engage in unlawful or unethical behavior
- Requesting qualified family or medical leave
In addition, adverse employment actions can take many forms, including (but not limited to):
- Denial of a promotion
- Denial of a pay raise
- Reduction in hours
- Undesirable shifts, assignments, or duties
- Other disciplinary action
If your employer is treating you unfairly because you exercised your rights under the law, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
