We know that the last thing you ever expected was that you would need to report your employer for wrongdoing. However, when you need a whistleblower attorney, we are going to be by your side. At the Azadian Law Group, PC, we will put our knowledge and experience to work while we stand up for you and what you are doing. This is the right thing to do, and you may even be eligible for compensation.

Why would someone need to come forward?

The first thing you need to know is that California has significant whistleblower laws in effect. The whistleblower laws here protect both private and public employees.

  • Retaliation against an employee for coming forward about the illegal activity is a crime.

Employees who know of wrongdoing on the part of their employer are protected when they come forward to police. New laws enacted in 2014 expand protections:

  • Those who come forward to report suspected wrongdoing are protected.
  • Those who make internal reports to supervisors or those who come forward to an external public body conducting an investigation are protected.
  • Even those who are working as third parties for an employer are protected when they come forward.

Why might a person need to come forward?

  • If they know of illegal criminal activity or have been asked to participate in a criminal activity on the part of their employers such as illegal dumping or willful pollution.
  • A worker may know of California wage or labor violations and wish to report it.
  • Public employees may want to report wasteful or incompetent activities to a state agency.
  • Workers may need to report unsafe working conditions.

What is a qui tam claim and how is it different?

A qui tam claim is similar to whistleblowing but involves allegations that the employer has committed fraud. This can include, but is not limited to:

  • Securities and stock fraud
  • Tax fraud (business, political campaigns, etc.)
  • Medicare/Medicaid fraud
  • Any other fraud involving government funds

With these claims, the person making the report may be eligible for up to 30% of the recovered funds. This can often result in significant amounts being paid to the person who raises the alarm.
