Recognizing And Challenging Employer Retaliation
Both federal and California law give you the right to a safe work environment. That also gives you both the responsibility and the right to report unlawful behavior or misconduct in your workplace. Unfortunately, some employers may retaliate against you for exercising that right.

What Retaliation Might Look Like
Some of the most common reasons for retaliation include:
- Opposing harassment
- Protesting discrimination
- Whistleblowing on unlawful practices
Employers know retaliation is against the law. Therefore, they might not fire you to avoid charges of wrongful termination. Instead, retaliation could take various forms, including:
- Passing you over for promotion
- Providing only undesirable assignments
