California Lawyers: Whistleblower Protection
In general, when an employee who reports workplace misconduct that he or she reasonably and in good faith believes is unlawful, the employee cannot legally be retaliated against by the employer. Many employees are hesitant to blow the whistle when they observe or suspect illegal activity because they fear that they will lose their jobs. It is important for these employees to know that there are laws in place to protect them from any type of retaliation, including termination, demotion and various types of discrimination and unfair treatment. The law firm of San Diego Employment Law Group in San Diego assists whistleblowers in utilizing the legal protections available to them and has done so many hundreds of times over 15 years.
