When you witness or experience sexual harassment in the workplace, it is crucial to stand up against it without fear of retaliation. Your employer is legally obligated to protect your rights, and taking action against you for reporting sexual harassment is considered retaliation, which is unacceptable and unlawful.
At PLBSH, we have over 50 years of experience in employment law, successfully advocating for clients in various retaliation cases, including those involving wrongful termination for reporting sexual harassment. We are committed to fighting for your rights and helping you build a strong case for fair treatment under the law.
If you have been wrongfully terminated due to reporting sexual harassment, we will work diligently to restore your rightful position and seek compensation for any damages incurred. While California is an at-will state and employers can terminate a person’s position at any time, there are exceptions. For example, you cannot lawfully be fired for reporting sexual harassment.
Demotion, Pay Cuts, and Other Adverse Actions
Retaliation can take various forms, including demotion, pay cuts, being passed over for promotions, schedule changes, or hostile behavior. We will guide you through the process, ensuring that you understand your rights and options, and work towards your desired resolution.
Taking the Necessary Steps: Pursuing a Retaliation Claim
There are several steps involved in pursuing a claim for retaliation. You should:
- Gather Evidence: Collect any evidence that supports your opposition to or reporting of the sexual harassment, such as emails, witnesses, or other documentation. This evidence will strengthen your case.
- Request a Written Explanation: Request a written explanation from your employer regarding the termination or any adverse action taken against you. This will help document their response and potentially uncover any inconsistencies.
- Contact an Attorney: Reach out to our experienced retaliation attorneys at [BUSINESS]. We will provide an honest assessment of your case’s strength and guide you through the necessary steps to initiate your claim.
