Many individuals are concerned about the consequences if they file a lawsuit against their employer. Many employees fear retaliation or even termination of their employment if they bring a lawsuit against their employer, even if the lawsuit is brought in good faith. It is important to be familiar with the protections provided to California employees before you bring a claim

Whether you have brought a lawsuit against your employer or not, you are protected from retaliation by your employer. Retaliation includes, but is not limited to, termination, demotion, harassment and pay cuts.

Just because you have decided to bring a lawsuit does not mean you need to leave your position at the company you work for. As an employee working in the State of California, you have rights granted to all employees that protect you from situations such as those discussed above. Filing a lawsuit against your employer does not give them the grounds to terminate you, demote you, or harass you in any way.
