For those who have come across matters that involve safety and health issues in the workplace, or dishonest business practices that violate any federal, state, or local laws, you may qualify for legal representation as a protected whistleblower. A whistleblower is any individual who provides or reports information relating to a violation of the law or any other regulation.

We understand that it takes courage pursuing legal action against an employer or larger business for fear of tarnished reputation or job loss. Fortunately, there are active laws that protect you in doing what is right by reporting violations you see. However, you should also consult with an experienced whistleblower attorney.

You Are Not Alone

As a whistleblower, you act as both the eyes and ears of the public in business and organizations that affect our health, safety, and financial security. Any organization, whether it be public or private and every level of employment, is vulnerable to corruption. A few examples include:

  • Reporting OSHA and other occupational safety hazards and violations
  • Tax evasion or simple failure to pay taxes
  • Misrepresenting the company’s financial, employment or accounting records
  • Money laundering by the company
  • Embezzling money from clients
  • Perpetrating fraud against customers, clients or business partners
  • Fraudulent billing practices
  • Fraudulent insurance claims
  • Bribery and
  • Loan and mortgage fraud.

Reporting Illegal Activity Is A Protected Right

Whistleblower protections are designed to safeguard the public. An employee with inside information may be the only line of defense against certain crimes or wrongdoings unknown to the public. Thus, the law encourages and protects employees in coming forward when they witness wrongful activity occurring in the workplace. People’s lives may literally depend on it.

These protections ensure that all employees have the power and security to come forward without fear of retaliation for doing the right thing. Still, navigating these troubled waters can be difficult and that’s why you should consult the right whistleblower lawyer in California.

There are circumstances where you’ll want to whistleblow before consulting an attorney. Come forward right away if someone is in danger. You may just save a life. You’ll want to consult an employment attorney after coming forward to mitigate any fallout from your courageous action.

California Whistleblower Laws

Whistleblowers are protected under the law. Damages in California can be sought from the company or their agents, which sometimes extends to third-party management contractors, temporarily contracted employee agencies, among other entities. Consult with an employment lawyer in California to understand the full scope of your protections.
