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
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
- 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
