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
