A Staunch Advocate For California Whistleblowers
Whistleblowers provide an invaluable service to the public by revealing wrongdoing. Unfortunately, employers often use their power to punish whistleblowers via wrongful demotion, reassignment or termination. If you need to blow the whistle or you have already done so, you have the right to legal protection.
This is exactly what I provide. At my law firm, Law Offices of David S. Secrest, I advocate for the rights of workers throughout California. With more than 20 years of experience to my name, I can help you navigate the many complex regulations involved in whistleblower and qui tam law as I seek maximum compensation for your damages.
California Whistleblower Law: What To Know
Our state is notable in that it protects whistleblowers in both the public and private sectors. The California False Claims Act allows employees to file qui tam lawsuits against their employers, similar to how government employees may file suits on behalf of public entities against someone who misused government funds.
Employers may not retaliate against employees for reporting unlawful or unethical activity or trying to stop it. In some instances, individuals who retaliate against someone on behalf of the employer may even face misdemeanor criminal charges.
