Employment and labor law firm Yash Law Group focuses primarily in the practice area of employment and labor litigation, such as claims involving unpaid wages, harassment, and retaliation, discrimination. Both state and federal laws protect employees who report unlawful activity of their employer. These employees are commonly referred to as “whistleblowers.” Whistleblowers may be entitled to protection against termination whether they report the unlawful activity to a government agency or to their employer.
When employers engage in unlawful conduct, employees should feel emboldened and protected in voicing their opposition to the employers’ misconduct. However, there are a lot of challenges for an employee to stand up against unlawful, fraudulent, or unfair conduct by the employer, who is always in a more superior position. It can be intimidating or scary. The employee may not know all the details about the employer’s misconduct. Or the employee may not know who to report the misconduct to. However, without the employee blowing the whistle, the employer may continue to engage in unlawful activities unobstructed. Employees must enforce their rights.
Whittier whistleblower attorney Yashdeep “Jesse” Singh serves Whittier, California and has represented employees who have been fired, demoted, or suspended in retaliation for making a complaint about their employers’ misconduct. He has experience filing complaints in Los Angeles County Superior Court of California for claims under California laws that provide whistleblower protection, such as the California Fair and Employment Housing Act and the California Labor Code. If an employee reports same-sex harassment, the employee is protected as a “whistleblower.” If the employee reports that she and other workers are not receiving all wages they are due or not receiving their lunch breaks, the employee is protected as a “whistleblower.” Any adverse employment action in response to such “protected activity” is subject to civil liability.
Whistleblower employees who are fired may be entitled to back pay, damages for emotional and mental distress, punitive damages, and attorney’s fees and costs. An experienced trial lawyer can help.Contact Us For a Free Consultation Regarding Whistleblower Claims
