California Whistleblower Lawyers
People are reluctant to speak out when their employers violate the law. You don’t need to be afraid. Your employer cannot terminate you or punish you in any way because of your whistleblower efforts. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker is available to assist you in challenging unfair or unlawful measures.
What Is Considered Whistleblowing In California?
Whistleblowing is the act of an employee informing the appropriate authorities of unlawful or fraudulent behavior. Typical instances of whistleblowing include disclosing:
- Health and Safety Violations
- Tax Fraud
- Financial Forgeries or Fraud
- Deceptive or Unfair Business Practices
- Shareholder Rights Violations
- Other Employment Law Violations
As long as the employee can demonstrate they had a good faith belief that criminal action had happened, they are protected. It’s crucial to emphasize that whistleblower protections exist even if it turns out the employer was not responsible for the alleged illegal behavior.
How to React to Whistleblowing Retaliation
When you participate in whistleblower activities, you should keep careful records of potential retaliation events. For example, you should collect all possible incident documentation if you are subjected to hostility at work, disciplined, or fired. Request a written explanation of the action taken against you, a copy of your employee record, and contact information from any coworkers who may have witnessed employer remarks or actions relevant to your case.
