Am I guarded against retaliation under federal law and state law?
Employees are protected under federal law and California state law.Title VII of the Civil Rights Act applies in federal law. The Labor Code, Fair Employment Housing Act (FEHA) and the California Constitution cover California state law. Employment claims ought to be brought under California state law since it offers better protection.
How do you define retaliation under California law?
The California Whistleblower Act protects workers who accuse their employer of committing illegal activities. It makes it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee who they know or suspects to be involved in whistleblowing claims.
Can I combine retaliation with wrongful termination, harassment and discrimination claim?
Yes. You should do so whenever possible because a retaliation claim is easier to prove than a wrongful termination, harassment, or discrimination claim.
How do I prove my retaliation claim?
You must prove that you made a complaint to the employer or state agency, that the complaint was reasonable and made in good faith and that, and as the result of the claim, you suffered an adverse employment action. An adverse employment action can include termination, demotion, or failure to promote. Your case will be proved by the proximity of your complaint and the employer's adverse action. If it occurred within 2 weeks, you have a good case.
