Whistleblowers are protected against employer retaliation under several California and federal laws. A whistleblower is a person who reports employer activities that are believed to be illegal, fraudulent and/or improper. In whistleblower actions the employer may be an individual, corporation, government agency or other entity. Once an employee reports employer wrongdoing, they are often subject to retaliation. If you reported questionable activity to the state or federal government and are being treated in a retaliatory manner, we can help you obtain the protection and compensation that you are legally entitled to.
