Wrongful Retaliation Lawyers in Santa Monica

There are several forms of wrongful retaliation: it is anything that can be classified as punishment due to a complaint, including wrongful termination. In one case, an employee was fired because of a complaint about not being offered the opportunity to work overtime. In another, an employee was demoted for accusing her supervisor of sexual harassment.

The Fair Employment and Housing Act is the general California law under which employees who have suffered wrongful retaliation have a cause of action. It encompasses:

  • The Whistleblower Act
  • Unsafe Work Environment
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Wage and hour disputes

Under California law, it is not even necessary to prove that your original complaint was legitimate. If you were fired after you complained, you have a legitimate cause of action for wrongful retaliation against your employer.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Lisa L. Maki in Santa Monica will diligently protect your right to voice your concerns or displeasure in the workplace without fear of retaliation.
