California Whistleblower Retaliation Representation

With offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, the attorneys at The Employment Law Group® law firm have substantial experience representing employees who reported their employer’s wrongdoing. The federal government, California, and nearly every state have enacted laws that prohibit employers from retaliating against whistleblowers:

California Whistleblower Protection Act (CA WPA). The CA WPA prohibits retaliation leveled against state employees who report improper governmental activities.

California False Claims Act (CA FCA). The CA FCA is similar to the Federal False Claims Act and authorizes the state government to reward whistleblowers who report their employer’s attempts to defraud the California state government. The law also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report the fraud or participate in a government investigation.

Federal False Claims Act (FCA). The FCA authorizes the federal government to reward whistleblowers who report information regarding fraud committed by contractors against the federal government. Additionally, the law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report the fraud or participate in the government’s investigation.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). SOX prohibits corporations from retaliating against employees who report fraud committed against the shareholders. Examples of protected conduct include reporting an employer’s improper entries on financial statements, raising a concern about a supervisor’s practice of backdating letters of credit, or reporting any other practices that the whistleblower reasonably believes would mislead shareholders.

Dodd-Frank Act (DFA). The DFA establishes three new whistleblower anti-retaliation provisions.

  • SEC Whistleblower. The SEC must reward whistleblowers who report corporate fraud exceeding $1 million. The law prohibits employers from retaliating against whistleblowers.

  • Commodity Futures, Options, & Derivatives CFTC Whistleblower. The CFTC must reward whistleblowers who report the illegal manipulation of derivatives and options. The law prohibits employers from retaliating against whistleblowers.

  • Financial Services Whistleblower. The law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report fraud related to a financial product or service, i.e., mortgages, credit cards, financial advice, etc….

If you are considering blowing the whistle or your employer is retaliating against you, contact The Employment Law Group® law firm at 1-888-603-0983 or inquiry@employmentlawgroup.com to discuss your potential claim.
