When Pretense Belies Punishment
Sometimes doing the right thing results in yet another wrong thing. This is the case with workplace retaliation. If you report discrimination or sexual harassment in your workplace — whether against you or someone else — and you suffer negative employment consequences as a result, you may be able to file a retaliation lawsuit against your employer. Sometimes the retaliation can be subtle or hard to prove. But that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. If you have questions about a potential retaliatory action taken by your employer, schedule a free initial consultation with our California firm, the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., to gain clarity and learn your rights.
Retaliation Isn’t Just Firing
There are many things an employer could do to punish you for reporting harassment at work short of the nuclear option of retaliatory discharge:
- Giving a poor performance review
- Withholding a promotion
- Taking disciplinary action
- Isolating and estranging you from co-workers
- Giving you less desirable assignments
Similarly, there are many ways an employer could try to justify such decisions as having nothing to do with your complaint. That’s why you need a tough and savvy attorney on your side if you’re facing issues of potential retaliation. Enduring a workplace rife with harassment and discrimination is bad enough. Don’t be bullied by retaliatory actions on top of it. Contact our office to find out how you can push back and gain some sanity in the workplace.
Speak directly to Todd M. Friedman about your case. He will give you prompt, in-depth feedback to help you understand your options. Our personalized approach saves you valuable time and minimizes the uncertainties surrounding a legal claim.
