One issue which many in the Los Angeles area face is workplace retaliation, something which is prohibited by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH).
Below are some common examples of when an employee may be retaliated against:
- Refusing to comply with orders given which would result in discrimination or violation of law
- Resisting sexual advances or intervening in order to protect others against harassment or discrimination
- Speaking with a supervisor or a manager about discrimination or retaliation in the workplace
- Filing or agreeing to be a witness to an EEOC complaint, investigation, charge or lawsuit
- Asking management or other co-workers about how much they are paid to determine whether or not you are being paid discriminatory wages
Employer Retaliation Is Illegal
An employer may retaliate against an employee in a number of ways:
