Protecting the Rights of Whistleblowers in Contra Costa, Alameda, Solano, and San Joaquin Counties
When an employee reports an employer’s illegal activities, they’re known as a “whistleblower.” Unfortunately, even if what they’ve done is completely justified, they can face serious repercussions and retaliation from their employer, fellow workers, or administrators. These claims can relate to individuals, such as with sexual harassment claims, or may target the company as a whole, as with environmental pollution claims. No matter what violations you’ve witnessed at your place of work, you have the right to report it, and be legally protected afterwards.
