Whistleblower Retaliation

It is not uncommon for an employee to witness a fraudulent or criminal act and simply stay quiet for fear of retaliation.

At California Employment Counsel, APC, we understand that many employees want to do the right thing, but are afraid of retaliation like being fired, demoted or more. We can help you protect yourself from retaliation, while still being able to do the right thing and report the incident.

What Does Retaliation Encompass?

Based on an employer's actions, retaliation can mean many things, including:

  • Threats or general intimidation by a manager or supervisor
  • Isolation by co-workers
  • Harassment by co-workers
  • Negative performance reviews
  • Demotion
  • Transfers to other departments or locations

These forms of retaliation can lead to a hostile work environment and can hurt a worker's chance for promotion or advancement.
