Once an employee has engaged in protected activity, such as filing a lawsuit against the employer or consulting the employee’s union, an employer may be subject to additional liability if the employer subsequently treats the employee adversely. Disparate treatment in retaliation of an employee asserting his or her rights often violates both California and Federal laws. An employee may sue his or her employer for retaliation if the employee is demoted, terminated, or subjected to a hostile work environment subsequent to taking legal action against the employer or engaging in any other type of protected activity.
