Whistle blowers are employees who discover that their company or organization
has been engaging in acts of wrongdoing. These acts might include attempts
to defraud shareholders, violations of laws, or similar dishonest practices.
Employment law protects whistle blowers from retaliatory actions such as unfair dismissal.
If the company does violate employee rights, the whistle blower can contact
an employment lawyer working in San Jose, CA.
Whistle blowers are strongly advised to keep meticulous records regarding
all violations of California labor law. In addition to unfair dismissal,
retaliatory actions may include blacklisting, demoting, denying benefits,
reducing wages or hours, disciplining, unfair reassigning, threatening,
or intimidating employees. When preparing a whistle blowing claim, the
employment lawyer will look for evidence to prove that the protected disclosure
made by the whistle blower led directly to the retaliatory action by the
employer. Successful whistle blowing claims will result in remedies that
may include reinstatement or a compensatory award.
