You don’t have to worry about losing your job. Call Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, today at (510) 433-1000 to speak with a Los Angeles-, San Francisco- or Oakland-based whistleblower lawyer in confidence. We offer free initial consultations and pursue all cases on a contingency fee basis.
How to Fight Employer Retaliation
Once a claim has been filed with the state or other appropriate legal authority outside your company, your employer may retaliate. You may experience physical, financial and/or psychological threats, actions or coercion. Your job may be terminated as well, but the California Whistleblower Protection Act protects your rights and safeguards you against such retaliation.
If you are impacted by adverse employment actions, threats, coercion or acts of violence after reporting an illegal practice or regulation violation, we can help you protect your rights and advance your best interests.
Our law firm empowers employees and aggressively seeks compensation for resulting damages, including:
- Past and future medical treatment
- Past and future wage loss
- Pain and suffering, and emotional distress
- Punitive damages if we can establish serious enough misconduct by the company to warrant damages intended to punish the company (Government entities cannot be sued for punitive damages.)
