According to the State of California, it is the public policy of the State of California to encourage employees to notify an appropriate government or law enforcement agency, person with authority over the employee or another employee with authority to investigate, discover, or correct the violation or noncompliance when they have reason to believe their employer is violating a state or federal statute or violating or not complying with a local, state or federal rule or regulation.
The State encourages employees to speak up if and when they see, hear or experience their employer engaging in illegal behavior, or if their employer requests or requires them to engage in illegal, fraudulent or unethical behavior.

What is Whistle-Blowing, or a Whistle-Blower?
The term whistle-blowing refers to actions an employee may take to complain about, file a complaint on, or otherwise take action to “turn in” an employer or fellow employee that they believe has violated the law in some way. The law firm of Robert David Baker, Inc. has represented employees who have faced workplace discrimination or illegal employment termination following an act of whistle-blowing, and we are proud to serve employees in the greater San Jose area. Employment law is what we specialize in, and we are proud to represent employees who have stood up to do the right thing, and report suspected fraudulent, illegal or unethical behavior by their employer.
What sorts of complaints are covered under whistle-blowing laws?
There are some employee complaints where the employee is protected from retaliation by the California statute, including complaints about discrimination by an employer based on gender or sexual orientation, race or national origin, race or disability. Additionally, other complaints about suspected illegal or unethical behavior by an employer may be covered under either other California whistle-blowing laws or federal laws. The law firm of Robert David Baker, Inc. is experienced with both state and federal whistle-blowing laws, and if you have any concern about any suspected activity at your employer and any retaliation you are experiencing as a result of your complaint about this suspected activity, we are happy to discuss the facts of the case with you.
Additionally, if your employer has requested or required you to perform an illegal activity and you have been retaliated against for refusing to participate in the illegal or unethical behavior or conduct, you may have a case under state or federal whistle-blowing laws.
