Whistleblower Claims

WhistleBlower Claims Lawyer

Our Office Represents Whistleblowers Across California.

A whistleblower is an employee that identifies fraud within their company and takes legal action to expose that fraud.  Under California and federal laws, an employee whistleblower may be entitled to receive a portion of the damages recovered by the government as a result of exposing the fraud.

The purpose of the whistleblower laws is to motivate employees to confront and expose corruption, even if it might threaten their jobs or lives.  Whistleblowers are entitled to special protections under the law, including protection against retaliation.

Common areas of fraud that whistleblowers expose:

“It is the public policy of the State of California to encourage employees to notify an appropriate government or law enforcement agency, person with authority over the employee, or another employee with authority to investigate, discover, or correct the violation or noncompliance, and to provide information to and testify before a public body conducting an investigation, hearing or inquiry, when they have reason to believe their employer is violating a state or federal statute, or violating or not complying with a local, state or federal rule or regulation.”

Oftentimes, whistleblowers will face unlawful discrimination and workplace retaliation from their employers for such actions.  If your employer retaliates against you for filing a whistleblower claim, you have legal protection.
