What does a California Employee Need to Prove to Establish Retaliation?

A California employee needs to prove three elements to prevail on a retaliation claim. 

First, the employee engaged in protected activity;

Second, the employer took an adverse employment action against the employee;

Third, a causal link between the protected activity and the adverse employment action.  In other words, the employer took against the employee because of the protected activity.
