Retaliation still a fear of Google employees

Though most workplaces in California are welcoming when it comes to the concerns of employees, there are those companies that may discourage employees from speaking out. In extreme cases, there are some workplaces that will actively punish employees for attempting to call out bad practices at their companies. There are laws in place meant to protect employees from retaliation, but it still happens. This is what many employees allege about tech giant Google, which has come under fire for similar accusations in the past.

Late last year, several employees staged a walkout in protest of how Google was handling accusations of sexual misconduct. The employees alleged that the company retaliated against those who brought instances of sexual harassment and misconduct to light. They claimed when they brought these concerns to appropriate departments that the company demoted them, removed them from certain projects and even moved them to other less advantageous projects.

At that time, Google said it would change its policies to combat any future problems. Many employees felt that Google did not adequately address their concerns and even said that the retaliation continued. Several more employees walked out over the next few months, and earlier this year many who remained arranged to have a town hall for employees to collectively share their stories. Many employees are reporting to media that Google is choosing to hide any problems instead of handling them properly.

In this particular instance, it is helpful that the employees seem to have one another to corroborate these accounts of retaliation. However, not every employee in every industry is so lucky. Some may have to turn to other legal measures to resolve their issues. This is where an employment law attorney here in California with extensive experience in handling these types of legal claims can be a significant asset. Employees shouldn't have to fear for their careers when they do the right thing.
