Los Angeles Whistleblower Attorney

S

tanding up for what is right is not always easy, especially when you are facing pressure from individuals or groups within your workplace. It takes a great deal of courage to report illegal, immoral, or unethical behavior. Without whistleblowers, large corporations are often able to conceal serious legal violations with little accountability. From unsafe working conditions to embezzlement, the law seeks to protect individuals who speak out, no matter what crime their employer has committed.

Do I Qualify as a Whistleblower?

A whistleblower is anyone who speaks out against illegal, unethical, or discriminatory business practices. Employees of both private businesses and government organizations can be whistleblowers. In fact, it is important that companies have a system in place for whistleblowers to come forward and be protected in the event that they witness illegal or unethical conduct at work. If you possess a good faith belief that your employer is breaking the law, you are entitled to speak out without fear of repercussions.

Whistleblowing frequently involves both retaliation and wrongful termination. You may qualify as a whistleblower regardless of whether you’ve been wrongfully terminated. If you feel that your rights were not properly protected as a whistleblower, our team of Los Angeles employment lawyers may be able to help.

How Do I Know If I Have a Whistleblower Case?

If you have witnessed conduct by an employer or fellow employee that you deem is illegal, you may be wondering what constitutes a strong whistleblower case in Los Angeles. The following factors may be helpful when determining whether or not you should consider moving forward with your case:

 

  • What is the type of misconduct or harm? Have you witnessed financial loss to the company or government, a violation of the securities or commodities law, or harm to employees or investors? If so, and if you can provide proof, you may have a strong whistleblower case.
  • Will your information result in a financial reward? Depending on the details of your case, the information you provide may entitle you to a financial reward. 
  • Is the information timely? You have up to three years after an incident to file a whistleblower claim against a company in California.

Our award-winning employment lawyers are equipped with knowledge of California’s complex employment laws to help you decipher whether or not you should proceed with your claim.
