Protecting Whistleblowers From Employer Retaliation
It takes courage to report your employer’s unlawful activities. While whistleblowers are generally protected by law, employers are known to illegally retaliate against workers who report corporate fraud, workplace safety violations and other illegal actions.
At Gwilliam Ivary Chiosso Cavalli & Brewer in Oakland, California, we fully understand the plight of the whistleblower. Our lawyers have successfully represented whistleblowers across the greater Bay Area for many years.
If you reported something illegal at work and are now being retaliated against, call 510-832-5411 to schedule a free legal consultation.
Are You A Whistleblower? Our Attorneys Want To Talk To You.
Employees who report companies’ unlawful behavior, such as corporate fraud or misstatements in financial documents, are often termed “whistleblowers.” Other examples of whistleblower actions may include the discovery of health and safety violations in the workplace or noncompliance with anti-discrimination and harassment regulations.
You are a whistleblower if you know or suspect that your employer is doing something illegal, and you will not stand for it. The government relies on people like you to challenge corporate misconduct, and it has instituted laws to reward and protect whistleblowers.
If you witnessed or heard of illegal activity and reported it, you may have already been fired, demoted or threatened with other actions. Federal and state law protects whistleblowers, and we urge you to contact us today to learn how to protect your career and your livelihood in the face of this challenge.
Our Approach To Whistleblower Protection Cases
Some of the firm’s employment law results have been in high-profile cases, and some have not. All of them have been important cases to our firm. To ensure outstanding client service, our lawyers accept only those cases we strongly believe in. Our experience and resources can make a real difference in the lives of our clients.
For each case that we accept, a team is assigned that includes one of the firm’s partners (someone with anywhere from 25 to 40 years of trial experience), an associate attorney, a paralegal and a legal assistant. This allows us to devote the necessary time and resources to case preparation and research; it also ensures that someone who is familiar with your case will almost always be available to respond to your needs.
