This sounds like fairly typical retaliatory action by the employer. Under California law, workplace retaliation is unlawful when your employer punishes you when you engage in protected activities. Protected activities include complaining of workplace harassment.
You can sue for unlawful retaliation in the work place. These cases are complicated and you want an experienced employment discrimination attorney to assist you. Most attorneys who do this work will meet with you to assess you case at little or no charge. The laws in regard to retaliation allow you to recover your attorneys fees as well as punitive damages in many cases. So it is worth your while to contact local counsel.
