Providing Legal Protection For Whistleblowers
Whistleblower laws are designed to encourage employees to report employer wrongdoings and participate in investigations and legal proceedings against their employers without fear of retaliation. Under California law, employers are prohibited from taking retaliatory action against an employee who asserts their legal right to participate in the judicial or investigative process or who reports unlawful conduct to their employer.
