Protection Against Whistleblower Retaliation

California’s Whistleblower Protection Act offers strong assurances for employees.

Whistleblower laws protect employees in a number of ways:

  • They safeguard employees against any retaliatory act following the report of a violation of state or federal law.
  • They protect any reports made internally (e.g., to a workplace supervisor) or externally (e.g., a public hearing).
  • Some laws extend this liability even beyond the employer to include anyone acting on the employer’s behalf (e.g., a third-party management contractor).
  • They protect employees who disclose violations, even if they do so beyond their regular or official role.
  • Anyone who is eligible for protection under these laws may file damage claims for any retaliation (e.g., repayment for lost wages or for damaged reputation).
