Retaliation

The California Labor Code prevents employers from retaliating against employees for engaging in certain protected conduct. Retaliation can take many forms such as demotion, transfer, reduction in earnings, discipline, and termination. Protected conduct that employees may freely engage in without being retaliated against includes: 

  • Exercising rights under the Labor Code
  • Disclosing violation of the law
  • Disclosing working conditions
  • Disclosing health or safety conditions
  • Refusing to work under hazardous conditions
  • Disclosing unsafe patient care
  • Advocating for medically appropriate healthcare
  • Discussing wages
  • Engaging in political activities
  • Participating in unemployment proceedings
