What is whistleblowing?

A whistleblower is defined as an individual who exposes information or activity that is considered unlawful or unethical. It’s important to note that whistleblowing is not the same as a complaint and there are numerous laws in place to protect those facing the unfair consequences of whistleblowing.

Protection from Retaliation

At Stewart & Musell, LLP, we have dedicated our practice to fully representing the rights of private and public employees. If you are an employee and suspect that your employer has violated the law or has allowed unsafe working practices, you may have grounds to file a complaint with the state. According to the California Labor Code, there are many protections that are afforded to whistleblowers, including the following:

  • An employer may not make, adopt, or enforce a rule, regulation, or policy preventing an employee from being a whistleblower
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee who is a whistleblower
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee for refusing to participate in an activity that would result in a violation of a state or federal statue, law, rule, or regulation
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee for having exercised his or her rights as a whistleblower in any former employment
