If an employer retaliates against an employee that has filed discrimination charges by firing, demoting, or harassing him or her, it is illegal. With the benefit of the guidelines in this blog, determine whether you should hire an L.A. Retaliation Lawyer.
Employees are protected against retaliation under the same laws that protect against discrimination based on a number of factors, like race, gender, and disability. These protections are found in laws that are enforced by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing. There are three main categories of retaliation.
However, it is important to know that not every negative action against an employee can be considered retaliation. Everyday occurrences, such as snubbing a colleague or speaking negatively about a co-worker for reasons that are justified, standing alone do not qualify as retaliation.
Retaliation in a workplace can be disruptive; make it harder to do your job correctly; and even lead to a loss of employment. If you feel that you have been the victim of retaliation because of discrimination charges you have made, our L.A. Retaliation Lawyers may be able to help.
