It is an unfortunate reality that people sometimes suffer negative consequences for doing the right thing. This can be particularly true in the workplace when employees report illegal activity or refuse to partake in it. In many instances, they can be the target of retaliatory actions that frequently include unjustified termination.
State and federal laws protect whistleblowers against any type of retaliation for their efforts to stop or prevent wrongdoing. People who find themselves under attack for doing the right thing will need the assistance of a reliable California employment law attorney with the ability to protect their rights.
