Employers should reward employees who speak up about illegal and unethical activities. Unfortunately, many whistleblowers are given the opposite treatment when they speak up. Some are fired, others face formal reprimands, and others may be more covertly punished. In any situation, employers who retaliate against whistleblowers break the law and can be held accountable for their actions.
At Fulton Law Corporation, we advocate on behalf of those who were punished for trying to do the right thing. Such treatment is illegal and no employee who experiences it should allow themselves to be taken advantage of. If you need to fight back, our whistleblower retaliation lawyer in Sacramento can help you seek fair and just compensation in a lawsuit against your current or former employer.
Rest assured that reporting illegal or unethical behavior at work is protected by law. So too is participating in an investigation into such behavior. If you have been reprimanded in any way for speaking up, reach out to the Fulton Law Corporation for help.
