Corren & Corren regularly represents both employees and employers in retaliation and whistleblowing matters.
Employees are commonly hesitant to report or complain about unlawful conduct in the workplace. Many employees fear that if they take any such action, they will be fired or suffer some other adverse employment consequence.
Employees should be able to report illegal conduct without having to worry about their job being at risk. California and/or federal law can protect employees from employer retaliation for reporting or complaining of certain kinds of unlawful conduct including:
- Health & safety violations
- Wage & hour violations
- California, federal, and local laws
Employer retaliation can take many forms and can include the following:
- Denied Promotion
- Reduction in compensation
- Reduction in hours
- Unwarranted discipline
If you are an individual or company involved in a retaliation or whistleblowing matter, please contact our office for a free consultation.
