The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) makes it illegal for an employer, labor organization, employment agency or person to discharge, expel, or otherwise discriminate against any person because the person has opposed any practices forbidden by FEHA, or because the person has filed a complaint, testified, or assisted in any proceeding under FEHA. California Government Code Section 12940(h). Retaliation can take many forms, such as termination of employment, suspensions, demotions, verbal or written warnings, salary reduction, change of assignment and other adverse actions. FEHA generally applies only to employers who regularly employee five or more employees. California Government Code Section 12926(d).
