Workplace retaliation refers to adverse actions taken by an employer against an employee in response to the employee’s participation in protected activities, such as filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment, reporting workplace safety concerns, whistleblowing, or exercising their legal rights.

Aryeh Leichter, a Los Angeles employment law attorney at the Leichter Law Firm, APC, takes these claims very seriously. He represents employees who are being retaliated against throughout California, including residential apartment managers.

Residential Apartment Managers Identify Workplace Retaliation

How Can California Residential Apartment Managers Identify Workplace Retaliation?

Residential apartment managers in California are in a unique and potentially vulnerable position when pursuing retaliation claims against their employers. Retaliation cannot only leave them out of work but also without a home, underscoring the seriousness of this issue.

Understanding the signs and behaviors that may indicate retaliatory actions by their employer can help build a legal claim against them for all adverse actions.

Here are some steps to help them identify workplace retaliation:

  • Recognize Patterns

Pay attention to any patterns of behavior or changes in treatment that occur after you engage in protected activities or raise concerns about workplace issues. Look for signs of adverse actions, such as sudden changes in your work assignments, increased scrutiny or criticism of your performance, or exclusion from meetings or opportunities for advancement.

  • Document Incidents

Keep detailed records of incidents or actions you believe may be retaliatory. This includes documenting the dates, times, and descriptions of the incidents and any witnesses present. Also, save any relevant emails, memos, or other documentation related to the incidents.

  • Seek Clarification

If you are unsure whether specific actions or behaviors constitute retaliation, consider seeking clarification from your employer. Express your concerns professionally and document any responses you receive.

Retaliation can be subtle and may escalate over time. To protect your rights, you must assert your legal protections, document incidents, and seek assistance from a skilled employment law attorney. Remember that retaliation is illegal, and you have the right to take action to address it.
