Employees who report discrimination, harassment or other unlawful behavior by their employers are protected by federal and California laws. Even so, some California employers retaliate by demoting, firing or taking other actions against employees who exercise their rights.
At the Barron Law Corporation, we protect the rights and the interests of employees who have encountered retaliation, harassment and other adverse employment actions. We can help you understand whether you have a viable claim against your employer. We have the experience to aggressively, skillfully and thoroughly pursue justice on your behalf.
Led by Sacramento employee retaliation attorney Deborah Barron, our firm can assist you in the preparation of applications you need to file with the appropriate state or federal agencies. We can help make sure your forms are filled out properly so that you won’t be tripped up down the road by inadvertent mistakes.
Since 1991, we have helped employees who were subjected to various types of retaliation by Sacramento-area employers. Cases we handle include:
- Wrongful termination and forced resignation
- Relocation to undesirable locations
- Denial of advancement opportunities (dead-ending)
- Padding files with trumped up warnings, suspensions or probation
- Unjustified negative performance reviews
We have the skill and ability needed to handle even the most difficult cases. Our firm can help you if you were punished for reporting discrimination or sexual harassment, reporting minimum wage violations, filing a workers’ compensation claim, taking time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act and a number of other behaviors protected by law.
Follow Timelines and Procedure to Protect Your Rights
If you have suffered from retaliation, there is a timeline and a procedure that must be followed. For instance, you need to send a written complaint to your manager, human resources department and the owner of the business. Review your company’s employee handbook to learn more about how your company handles retaliation matters, then speak with a lawyer.
