Employer Retaliation Archives

What are settlements and determinations for employer retaliation?

When California employees are subjected to workplace violations, they undoubtedly understand that they have the right to file a claim to be compensated for it. Still, they might not be completely aware of how the case will be settled or decided upon. Facing employer retaliation can make it difficult to move forward at the workplace. It can have a negative impact on every aspect of a person's working life and their personal life. Knowing how to file and why to file are the basics. The possibility of a settlement offer and what determinations the Labor Commissioner's Office can make is also key. Having legal help from the start is vital to a successful case.

Transitioning former security guard claims employer retaliation

Despite the growing acceptance and increased protections accorded to Californians who are transitioning or transgender, there continue to be incidents of discrimination, harassment and employer retaliation. For those who are dealing with these behaviors, it can cost them their job and present other problems in their lives. Fortunately, there are alternatives to seek justice by considering a legal filing for compensation. Those who have been mistreated in this way should remember their rights and take the necessary steps to pursue a legal case.

Is it employer retaliation if the dismissal is due to an illness?

In many California workplaces, workers are concerned about their job if they become ill and miss work. The circumstances will dictate what an employer can do to an employee who misses work without approval. There are times when employer retaliation is a legitimate problem and rather than face the possibility of job loss or other sanctions, employees feel as if they have no alternative but to work despite an illness. If a worker is so ill that he or she takes time off work and is retaliated against, it is important to know if the situation warrants a legal filing.

Can I file a complaint for employer retaliation in California?

Despite worker complaints and rights being granted greater attention in the media and public, employer retaliation and other forms of mistreatment against employees remains a problem in California. There are many ways in which a worker can be retaliated against. Understanding when there has been a legal violation is a foundational aspect to filing a complaint with the state and seeking compensation in a legal filing. Knowing who can file and how to go about it is one of the first steps toward a case.

What is "retaliation" when it comes to employment law?

There are many people in America, probably including many in California, who have more than a few complaints about their jobs. Those complaints are usually made just to co-workers, or maybe to a spouse when the worker gets home each night. However, there are situations in which serious complaints about illegal practices committed by an employer need to be listened to, especially when, as a result of the complaint, there are allegations of retaliation by the employer against an employee.
