Whistleblower Attorneys In Downey

If you have expressed concerns about workplace health or safety issues or fraudulent business practices, including violation of any federal, state, or local law, you may be entitled to protection as a whistleblower. We provide legal advice and representation to employees who have suffered retaliation for whistleblowing (also called Qui tam). Fortunately, any employee reporting illegal activity in the workplace is protected by federal and state laws designed to encourage employees to oppose or protest against illegal activity without fear of reprisals such as termination, demotion, or discrimination.
