Fight Illegal Retaliation with Help from a San Francisco Employment Lawyer
The law protects employees who have been subjected to - as well as witnesses of - workplace harassment.
Even if the claim is unproven, the employee and any witnesses are still
protected under federal and California laws. There are many possible examples
of retaliation, some of which are more obvious and some that are subtle.
Common forms of retaliation include:
- Unlawful termination
- Unreasonable demotion
- Unnecessary job shift, reassignment, or salary reduction
- Sudden unfair practices, such as unexpected performance review, exclusion
from meetings, unjustified disciplinary action
If you experience retaliation, you should speak immediately with a San
Francisco employment discrimination lawyer. We can investigate your claims
to determine if we can settle the issue out of court or if we need to
