Many Californians go to work every day just happy that they have a job. For many of these individuals, job security is everything, and rocking the boat in anyway is something they actively avoid. Yet, it is situations like these that allow employers to devoid workers of their employee rights. Workers may be denied breaks, proper accommodations, and fair treatment. When this happens, workers need to be sure to stand up for their rights. As scary as it can be, depending on the circumstances, the law may be on their side, providing them with an outlet and a remedy.
Of course, speaking out against your employer can lead to negative consequences. You may be passed over for promotion, denied hours, demoted, or even fired for speaking up. Such retaliation is illegal, though, so you shouldn’t be afraid to blow the whistle on workplace wrongdoing. If you are subjected to retaliation, then you can file a lawsuit against your employer. As a remedy you can seek reinstatement or compensation for your damages. This can take a lot of legal maneuvering and strong legal arguments, however, which is why many Californians turn to skilled employment law attorneys for help.
