$4,000,000 Awarded in California Retaliation Claim
What can I do if my employer retaliates against me because I told him I was going to file a wage claim for unpaid overtime?California state labor laws provide protection for employees who are discriminated against or retaliated against in any manner for filing a wage claim for unpaid overtime. Retaliation can be in the form of a termination or other actions short of a termination that are intended to punish an employee because they file a wage claim or threaten to file a wage claim with the Labor Commissioner. Employees who believe they have been retaliated against can either file a discrimination/retaliation complaint with the Labor Commissioner’s Office or hire a private employment law attorney to file a lawsuit.
