Oakland Retaliation Attorney
Taking a Stand Against Retaliatory Employers in California
Did you blow the whistle on your employer’s illegal practices and
face adverse actions as a result?
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for companies to break the law, whether through:
- Mismanagement of funds
- Abuse of authority
- Danger to public health
- Or safety or regulation violations
Even more unfortunate is that when someone is brave enough to call out
such practices, they are often punished by their employer in some way.
The good news is such behavior is against the law, so you may be able
to bring a lawsuit against the employer for retaliation.

through this unfortunate situation.

What Is Retaliation?
Retaliation is an unfavorable action taken by employers in response to
their employee’s complaints about violations of the law.
California law states that employees are entitled to be free from wrongful discharge,
unlawful discrimination, and unlawful retaliation in their place of work.
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Or retaliation for reporting any other violation or abusive behavior to
your employer or another authority
