Employees asserting their rights to stop illegal practices in the workplace often risk their job security for carrying out such activities. These employees are known as “whistleblowers” in the state of California.
A whistleblower is an employee who reports his or her employer’s suspected violation of federal and/or state law to any applicable third-party enforcement and/or regulatory agency. Furthermore, an employee is a qualified whistleblower if he or she reports illegal conduct to a superior with authority over the employee in the workplace. The employee need only have reasonable cause to believe that the employer is committing unlawful activity. Subsequent to making a report of an illegal activity, the corresponding employer is not permitted to retaliate against the employee as a result of the reported conduct.
