Retaliation and Whistleblower Protection
California and federal laws make it illegal for an employer to retaliate against any employee who provides information to a government or law enforcement agency where the employee has reasonable cause to believe that the information discloses a violation or noncompliance with a state or federal statute, rule, or regulation. A typical example of a whistleblower claim is when an employer retaliates against an employee by terminating him or her for either
1) complaining of some illegal activity that is prohibited by a statute or a constitutional provision, OR
(2) refusing to perform some illegal act requested by the employer.
