Los Angeles Workplace Retaliation Attorney

In Los Angeles, both federal and state laws protect employees who engage in protected activity at the workplace. Types of protected include but are not limited to:

  • Making good faith complaints about discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation in the workplace
  • Making good faith complaints about safety violations and/or an unsafe workplace
  • Making good faith complaints about wage or labor-related issues (i.e., failure to allow employees to take rest and/or meal breaks, not paying overtime or commissions)
  • Requesting reasonable accommodations
  • Participating in a workplace investigation

Once an employee has made a complaint, the employer has a duty to ensure the employee is not being retaliated against. An employer should also conduct an investigation into the employee’s complaints.

  • This does not mean that all employers obey the law. Employers both big and small throughout Los Angeles have sometimes been found to have engaged in workplace retaliation despite being legally prohibited from doing so.
