An Overview of Employee Whistleblower Protections
Broadly defined, a whistleblower is an individual who discloses information regarding alleged misconduct to the public or authorities. In many cases, whistleblowers are employees of a business, organization, or government entity. There are many federal and state laws in place to protect the rights of whistleblowers. Some notable examples include:
- The California Whistleblower Protection Act;
- The federal Whistleblower Protection Act;
- The False Claims Act;
- SEC whistleblower laws; and
- OSHA whistleblower laws.
With deep experience handling complex whistleblower cases, our Moreno Valley whistleblower lawyers are qualified to represent both individuals and employers in these cases. Call our firm now for help with a whistleblower issue in Riverside County, California.
An Overview of Workplace Retaliation Laws
The issue of workplace retaliation is closely tied to whistleblower protection. Employers cannot punish someone for “blowing the whistle”—even if the employee was ultimately incorrect in their assertion. Under state and federal whistleblower laws, employers cannot take adverse action against an individual employee simply because that worker engaged in a protected activity. Retaliation is unlawful. Examples of adverse action include suspension, demotion, and termination.
To be clear, retaliation is not only an issue in whistleblower cases. Employers in California are always prohibited from retaliating against employees engaged in other protected activities—including reporting discrimination and filing a formal harassment complaint. If you have any specific questions about these cases, our Moreno Valley workplace retaliation lawyers can help.
