A: Unfortunately this Q&A site is not the place to solicit an attorney to assist you. It is important that you quickly locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.

Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law offer a free or low-charge consultation and then if the matter has merit and sufficient value, they work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.

Good luck to you.

A: Go to https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/ (cut and paste into your browser) and then click on the link to file a complaint (https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/complaint-process/file-a-complaint/).

The forms are there for you, with explanations of what to do in cases of retaliation for exercising your rights under the laws which protect employees who are attempting to protect their legal rights. You can read about your rights and then take the first steps to protect your rights.

The next step is to find a lawyer to represent you and help you enforce your right to be free from retaliation when you engage in protected activity. A good place to start is the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA) website.
