Who is a Whistleblower?

California Whistleblower Lawyers Whistleblowers are workers who see their workplace partake in illegal or fraudulent activity. They decide it needs to be stopped. In reporting this activity, they become whistleblowers.

For hundreds of years, there have been laws that protect whistleblowers. California protects these employees after they blow the whistle on their employers. 

Whistleblower Cases

There are many different things that could be considered whistleblower cases. Some of these cases include:

  • Insurance fraud
  • IRS cases
  • Bank cases
  • Medicare fraud
  • And more

Our California whistleblower lawyers can help you get the information you need to get started.

What Does It Mean to Be a Whistleblower?

You may be considered a whistleblower if you think there is some illegal activity or wrongdoing at work and you take this information to EEOC.

People usually whistleblow when their managers or coworkers act in a way that is suspicious but sometimes it will be about their customers, third parties, etc. The law lets people bring forward whistleblower claims about what they think is illegal activity in the workplace regardless if it is the employer who signs their check or the third party workers who they don’t know by name.

Is a Complaint the Same as Whistleblowing?

When you make a complaint, it is typically about something that affects you on a personal level. That might be a complaint about discrimination or harassment you faced from a coworker. A complaint like that would be something you do for your personal betterment. However, whistleblowing is not usually something that impacts you as an individual only. Whistleblowers are people who make a larger scale problem known.

Am I Provided Protection by Law?

In 1996 the Employment Rights Act was passed. It made it so that if someone blew the whistle on a company, they are protected from their employer from being fired or retaliated against. You are given this right the second you are hired by a company. You don’t have to worry about being a long-standing employee in order to be protected by this act. You can receive compensation if you are retaliated against the same way you can be compensated for a discrimination claim.

You are also protected by the Public Interest Disclosure Act of 1998. This act exists to protect you if you make a disclosure of information that would be for public interest and then were made to be a victim or were fired.

How is Disclosure Qualified?

There are things you can and cannot blow the whistle about in order to be protected. You are entitled to blow the whistle if what you have observed is going to provide information that will be in public interest. You aren’t protected if the information is minor, trivial, or harmless.

If you are to blow the whistle in a protected manner, it should be about:

  • crimes taking place
  • miscarriage of justice in your workplace
  • activity you see that is creating a danger to health and safety
  • activity you see that is creating damage to the environment
  • activity you see that is against the law or breaks regulation
  • bribes
  • fraud

You can discuss this with an experienced California whistleblower lawyer to determine what is or is not in the public interest to blow the whistle on.
