Whistleblower Retaliation

The law protects workers who are victims of retaliation by their employers due to supporting or standing up for employees who were harassed or discriminated against. If you have been fired, demoted or disciplined because you reported an illegal activity occurring at the workplace, you have legal rights under state and federal whistleblower laws.

The law office of Carlin & Buchsbaum, LLP, is one of the most respected employee rights firms in Southern California. For more than 45 years, our attorneys have sought to protect the rights of employees who have suffered discrimination in the workplace as well as those who have suffered whistleblower retaliation. We will aggressively litigate your employment law case on your behalf.

Protecting Whistleblower Employees

As an employee, you should be able to report an illegal activity without suffering retaliatory consequences such as wrongful termination. Whistleblower is a term used to describe employees who report the illegal conduct of employers or supervisors.

If you have not yet been terminated or faced disciplinary action, threats of retaliation and harassment are still illegal. However, a causal link must be shown between the reporting activity of the employee and the retaliatory actions of the employer. Even if the employer did not engage in the underlying illegal activity, such as discrimination or harassment, it can still face legal action for retaliation.
