San Francisco Whistleblower Retaliation Attorney

Protecting Employees Against Retaliation by Their Employers

Workers in California are protected by numerous laws applying to nearly every facet of their employment. One law in particular protects employees who report illegal actions of their employers. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee who exposes their wrongdoing. If the employer takes retaliatory steps against the employee (the whistleblower), the employee may be entitled to financial compensation.

I am The Jaffe Law Firm. Throughout my four decades of legal practice, I have represented numerous clients in whistleblower retaliation cases. If your employer fired you, demoted you or otherwise tried to punish you after exposing its wrongdoings, you may have legal options. Contact a San Francisco whistleblower retaliation lawyer to learn more.

Examples of Whistleblower Protection

According to California Labor Code Section 1102.5, whistleblowers are protected from various forms of retaliation by their employers:

  • Retaliation after informing the company that it has broken the law
  • Retaliation after reporting illegal or discriminatory activities to authorities
  • Retaliation after an employee refusal to participate in an illegal or prohibited activity

Retaliation by an employer can be something as serious as firing an employee to something more subtle such as denying a promotion. But no matter what type of retaliation or punishment has been enforced, those actions are illegal.

At The Jaffe Law Firm I will work to protect employees who have made an honest effort to do what is right when their employers have done something illegal. Whistleblowers may be eligible for compensation and damages, which is based on the amount of recovery.
