Los Angeles Whistleblower Retaliation Lawyers
Over 50 Combined Years of Experience Fighting for Employees’ Rights
When an employer is engaged in unlawful, fraudulent, or unethical conduct, employees who report that conduct are known as whistleblowers. This is a tough decision for those employees to make. However, doing so sometimes results in mistreatment from their employers. Under California law, an employer may not fire an employee in retaliation for that employee engaging in whistleblowing. The Los Angeles-based whistleblower lawyers at the Feldman Browne Olivares Law Firm have represented numerous employees in wrongful termination claims and lawsuits arising from such whistleblowing activities.
Laws that Protect Whistleblowers
While complaints about discrimination or harassment based on race, gender, age, or disability are protected from retaliation by statute, whistleblowing can be more difficult to protect. However, complaints about illegal or unethical conduct may be protected under various California whistleblower statutes or the common law doctrine of wrongful termination in violation of public policy. When an employee refuses to engage in unlawful or unethical conduct, that may also constitute whistleblowing, which is protected from retaliation.
