What is Employer Retaliation?
Within Employment Law, retaliation causes of action are typically tied to allegations of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, negative conduct against whistleblowers in qui tam claims, workers compensation claims, or violations of California’s Pregnancy and Medical leave acts. Once the employer takes any negative action against you for your participation in one of the above or other protective activities, you have a claim for retaliation. Common types of retaliation may come in the form of wrongful termination, termination, lay-off, none-promotion, compensation, benefits, transfer to less desirable location or task, or the allowance of a hostile work environment.
If Your Employer Is Found Guilty Of Retaliation…
If a court finds that your employer retaliated against you, you may receive compensation in the form of pay that you would have gotten without the retaliation, front pay which is pay that you would have received, benefits, job reinstatement (if requested), compensatory damages for your emotional stress, or even punitive damages in outrageous cases. Once you contact our office and meet with one of our attorneys, we will evaluate your case, investigate the facts, and represent you in order for you to achieve the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve and that the law allows.

What Makes Stephen Danz & Associates Better
Employment discrimination cases are some of the most common, and complex, types in California. They require attorneys that are well-versed in the laws and equipped with the experience and resources to gauge the exact limits of each fact pattern. The success of each case is dependent on, and the amount of compensation for lost wages, benefits, emotional harm and other related damages is contingent upon the representation. Trust the specialized attorneys at Stephen Danz & Associates for a thorough understanding of your case and the proper application of the laws.
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”), a California employer may not terminate employees based on their membership in a protected group. These protected groups include age (over 40), disability, gender, marital status, religion, race, sexual orientation, pregnancy, national origin or ancestry, or medical condition.
Our specialized exclusively employee-side attorneys review the case with you at your convenience and remain involved until resolution. Often, this involves review of the facts, request and analysis of the evidence through subpoena, deposition of your supervisor and those involved in the decision-making, and many other resources that are well beyond the ability of smaller law firms.

San Bernardino Retaliation Attorneys
Retaliation is defined as an action by an employer, or someone acting on the employer’s behalf, against an employee who raised a concern. One common concern occurs when employees blow the whistle on corporations that federal or state violate statutes. Retaliation may appear in the form of harassment, intimidation, discrimination, demotion (or non-promotion), benefits, job assignment, or unlawful termination. Within whistleblowing under the False Claims Act, it is unlawful for employers to retaliate against employees who engage in protected whistleblower activity such as reporting violations to government authorities, testifying or giving statements as part of the investigation.
Laws Protecting Employees from Retaliation
There are many laws that protect employees from retaliation. Specifically, whistleblowers are protected against retaliation under the Deficit Reduction Act (“DRA”), False Claims Act (“FCA”), Fraud and Enforcement Recovery Act (“FERA”), and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“ACA”).
The FCA protects whistleblowers from retaliation by the employer such as terms and conditions of employment as result of an employee, contractor or agent’s lawful act aimed to stop an FCA violation. Relief may include reinstatement, two times back pay, interest, special damages, litigation costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees.
Title VII also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees based on their opposition to employment discrimination or the employees’ complaint of discrimination. Other types of anti-retaliation statutes are included in Fair Employment and Housing Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
