When you work hard at your job, consistently strive to do your best, and follow all relevant processes, procedures, and compliance requirements, it can be difficult to accept that you have ended up working for a company which is less than diligent in applying the same ethical standards to their operations. You know you should not simply turn a blind eye to fraudulent transactions, poor treatment of employees, deliberately misleading shareholders, or other immoral behavior that may be commonplace, but you also know that reporting these activities could have significant and difficult consequences for you personally. However, you should be aware that there are laws in place to protect whistleblowers from any negative consequences to their drawing attention to immoral activities by their employers.
If you have reported unlawful behavior at work, only to suffer retaliation such as dismissal, harassment, or other forms of backlash, a San Bernardino whistleblower attorney from JML Law could recover compensation on your behalf. You should never be punished or penalized for acting in a responsible, moral and lawful manner.
