Whistleblower Protections: California Employment Law

Misconduct takes place every day in the American workplace. These violations might never come to light were it not for the courage of whistleblowers.

Employees who speak out against wrongdoing deserve our respect and admiration. They deserve to be rewarded, not punished.

You Don't Have To Choose Between Saving Your Career And Doing The Right Thing

As a whistleblower, you are entitled to protection under state and federal law. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for:

  • Reporting misconduct
  • Acting as a witness
  • Cooperating with an investigation
