Did You Experience Retaliation?
Retaliation against a whistleblower is always illegal, but it’s not always so clear. While your employer may be so bold as to take overt actions to silence you, you may have experienced retaliation in ways that you may not have been able to connect to your report.
Retaliation against whistleblowers can include any of the following types of punishments:
- Selected for a layoff
- Demotion or stripped job duties
- Reduced hours
- Denial of benefits
- Negative performance reviews, especially if they are out of the ordinary
- Conflicting or confusing instructions that set you up to fail at certain tasks
- Harassment, whether physical or verbal
If your life at work has soured after filing a report, talk to a whistleblower retaliation attorney in Sacramento about your situation. You may be a victim of retaliation even if it doesn’t seem so clear – employers know such activity is illegal and may try to conceal the intent of their mistreatment.
