All too often, when an employee complains about unlawful behavior by a supervisor, manager, or employer, it is the employee who is disciplined or fired in retaliation. Retaliation against employees for participation in "protected activities", including reporting wrongful conduct by an employer is unlawful. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we have extensive experience advocating on behalf of individuals who have suffered employment retaliation and wrongful discharge.
Whether you have been retaliated against for standing up for your own rights, or someone else's rights, you may have a claim against your employer. If you believe your rights have been violated, or you have suffered retaliatory discharge, you need to take action immediately to remedy the situation. Contact us today to discuss your legal needs and options with a highly regarded Southern California employment law attorney.
Our lawyers have handled numerous cases of employer retaliation due to:
- Complaining of discrimination or harassment
- Participating in or offering testimony in an investigation or legal proceeding against the employer
- Requesting pregnancy leave or Family Medical Leave (FMLA)
Retaliation can take many forms, including increased harassment or discrimination, demotion, reduction in pay, or denial of promotion. However, one of the most severe forms of retaliation is wrongful discharge. In some cases, retaliation may even continue after employment has been terminated.
Many companies have policies and procedures in place to handle employment retaliation. You should follow your company's procedures laid out in the employee handbook, and maintain meticulous records of the actions you have taken to remedy the situation.
We will advocate diligently on your behalf to achieve the recovery you deserve. In mediation or litigation, and throughout every stage of the legal process, you can count on the Bononi Law Group, LLP to represent your best interests.
California law only allows a limited time period to file an employment retaliation complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). If you have been unlawfully terminated from employment, you should contact us immediately. At Bononi Law Group, LLP, trust our experience and our commitment to protecting your rights.
