The law prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers just as it prevents intimidation,
discrimination, harassment, and other unlawful practices in the workplace. If your
work environment has changed for the worse since you made a claim against an employee,
managers, supervisor, or owner of the company for which you work, contact me, Rutger
Heymann - a Bay area retaliation attorney, to discuss your work environment and the
how the changes may be unlawful.
Considerations for Public Employees - Timing is Critical
Public employees are often unaware that suing a government entity frequently requires
them to file a whistleblower or tort claim in a much shorter time period than filing
the same claim against a private employer. Timing is extremely important.
You Have Rights - Don’t Be a Victim
As a employment lawyer, I have often represented employees who have been mistreated
at work, and then are fired when they try to stand up for their rights. If you have
suffered in a hostile work environment, been discriminated against or singled out
as a victim of sexual harassment, or mistreated as a whistleblower, then you may
have a right to hold your employer accountable. If your employer retaliates when
you stand up for justice, contact us to hold them accountable.
