You may be exceedingly talented and the best in your field, but what would you do if an executive approached you at work one day and asked you falsify reports or other official documents? Say, for example, you were the financial professional with responsibility for safeguarding reports and records, and an earnings report was due to be announced, which you knew could have a negative impact on the company’s share price. If the executives asked you to amend the report, create a version which overestimates earnings, and send that one to the regulatory bodies, would you do it? If you act according to your conscience, and the law, you are in the right, but your employer may be unimpressed at your law-abiding actions and fire you for refusing to help portray the business in a positive light. Of course, this is not allowed, and is generally abhorrent behavior, but would you know what to do next? In short, what you should do if you are wrongfully fired for refusing to commit fraud or another violation of state or federal law, is contact an experienced Torrance wrongful termination attorney from Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers. We will use our extensive legal knowledge and expertise to hold your former employer accountable for their actions – both in terms of firing you for refusing to be complicit in their criminal activities, and for the actions themselves. If you are ever tempted to comply with the executive’s requests, for the sake of stable employment and an easy life, remember it is never acceptable to commit fraud and, if you do comply, you will be equally accountable for your fraudulent behavior.
