Whistleblower protection laws are designed to shield employees from adverse actions taken by employers when a worker reveals employer wrongdoing to the public or to a person in a position of authority. The decision to reveal wrongdoing should not be taken lightly and skilled legal guidance is highly recommended.

What Protections Are Afforded To Whistleblowers?

Federal law and the law of California protects whistleblowers from workplace harassment, demotions and wrongful termination. These protections extend to anyone who investigates, testifies or otherwise assists with a lawsuit brought forth by a whistleblower.

When Should You Blow The Whistle?

There are a number of considerations that should be kept in mind if you are thinking about exposing a company's illegal or unethical practices, including:

  • If the action is expected to take place in the future, is it certain to happen and how much harm might is cause?
  • If the suspected wrongdoing has already happened, are you certain that the action was indeed illegal or unethical?
  • Is revealing the wrongdoing in the best interest of the public?
  • Have you followed your employer's chain of command when addressing your concerns?

Whistleblowing may not always be the correct course of action. Our lawyers can help guide you through this process and help you explore your options.
