What’s Considered Retaliation Under California Law?

You have the right to report sexual harassment without fear of retaliation. Laws prohibiting sexual harassment in the workplace and classroom would have no teeth if perpetrators could silence the courageous victims who come forward.

Under California law, the Labor Commissioner prohibits retaliation after victims speak out against sexual harassment by employers, managers, or supervisors. Title IX protects students from similar consequences wrought by professors and college faculty.

Signs of Workplace and Classroom Retaliation

How do you know if you’ve been a victim of illegal retaliation? In employment, poor treatment could be retaliatory if connected to your courageous choice to speak out against harassment. Examples include:

  • Demotions

  • Dock in pay or benefits
  • Reduced advancement opportunities
  • Wrongful termination

In the college or university context, illegal retaliation could include:

  • Poor or failing grades
  • Limited educational opportunities
