Many employees feel it is their responsibility to act or “blow the whistle” when their employer engages in unethical or illegal practices. California Law protects these employees. Unfortunately, the law cannot prevent employers from retaliating against whistleblowers. You can pursue financial compensation by enlisting the help of a workplace retaliation lawyer if you were forced to resign, fired, or otherwise mistreated. These are a few tips that can help you document a retaliation lawsuit against your employer under the stipulations of California employment law.
Save All Communication and Correspondence
If you suspect you are a victim of workplace retaliation, you should save all forms of correspondence and communication between your supervisor, potential witnesses, and anyone else that may play a role in your lawsuit later. You would want to save voicemails, text messages, and emails among other correspondence that indicates retaliation against you.
