Whistleblower Retaliation In San Diego

A whistleblower is a person (often an employee or a contractor) who brings any form of illegal or unethical behavior on the part of a business or organization to the attention of the relevant person or body within the same organization, and/or to the police, government, or wider public consciousness.

Such behavior may take the form of violations of laws or regulations, company policies and rules, corruption, fraud, or any other form of wrongdoing. Sometimes, the information brought to light by whistleblowers can have direct repercussions in terms of public safety, national security and other important issues, and as such, the business or organization perpetrating the offense will often try to prevent whistleblowing, or retaliate against the whistleblower themselves.

In order to protect both the public interest and individual whistleblowers, a number of laws are in place to protect whistleblowers from such retaliation, which may be perpetrated by the guilty parties in order to prevent or deny the release of the information in question, or to later cover it up.

Taking the decision to become a whistleblower is one that no one makes lightly, given the potential repercussions that can accompany the decision; if you have made that difficult decision, contact Walker Law first for advice and advocacy.
