The Intersection of Whistleblower Laws and Employment Law in California

May 10, 2024 Admin Whistleblower

Welcome to Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers, where we specialize in navigating the complex landscape of whistleblower laws that intersect with employment law in California. Whistleblower cases are critical in upholding corporate integrity and safeguarding employees against wrongful practices. In California, where state and federal laws provide extensive protections for whistleblowers, understanding the intricacies of these statutes is paramount.

Why Whistleblower Laws Matter

Whistleblower laws empower employees to speak out against illegal or unethical behavior within their organizations without fear of retaliation. These laws serve as a crucial safeguard against fraud, discrimination, harassment, and other unlawful activities that may occur in the workplace. In California, employees are protected under various statutes, including the California Whistleblower Protection Act (CWPA), the California Labor Code, and federal laws such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Dodd-Frank Act.
