A variety of California and federal laws prohibit employers from taking retaliatory measures against employees who report reasonably suspected violations of state or federal laws to the government or law enforcement or, in some cases, to their employer. These are known as Whistleblower Laws.
Whistleblower Laws protect workers from employer retaliation for exercising their legal rights, which include the right to:
Report your employer for workplace violations, including (but not limited to) discrimination, harassment, wage and overtime violations, safety violations, rest break or meal break violations
Report reasonably suspected violations of laws or regulations to government or law enforcement.
If you are an employee who exercised your legal rights and believe that your employer is now engaging in retaliatory conduct as a result, Whistleblower Laws provide protection and it is crucial that you seek the advice of an experienced Employment Lawyer.
If you have taken action to protect your rights or help protect the rights of others, and as a result, your employer or an individual in a position of power over you is acting in such a way to make your job difficult to perform, or you are being denied promotions or raises that you would otherwise be entitled to receive, or you have been fired, contact Employment Lawyer Geniene Stillwell at (949) 494-4744.
