If you are a whistleblower or prospective whistleblower, it has probably occurred to you that there are risks associated with doing the right thing. One such risk is retaliation by an employer. Fortunately, there are certain laws in place that protect whistleblowers in the workplace.
Employees who report or complain of unlawful conduct by an employer, or refuse to participate in the employer’s unlawful activity may be protected from employer retaliation by the California Labor Code. In addition, the False Claims Act makes employers liable for retaliating against employees who investigate or report violations of the False Claims Act.
