Whistleblower Retaliation Archives

Can my employer fire me for reporting a safety hazard?

Employers have a duty to make their workplaces reasonably safe for their workers. Accidents can happen anywhere, and some types of work are more dangerous than others, but no one should have to work in a place filled with unreasonable risks of injury. Workers have the right to report safety hazards at work either to their employer or to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the federal agency that enforces federal safety standards in the workplace.

Employees protected for making complaints about illegal activity

When employees in California go to work, they must complete certain tasks throughout the day. Depending on what company they work for and their job title tasks may vary greatly, but there is an expectation that they will do what the employer asks them to do.

School employee fired after complaining about boss's actions

Within a company in California, employees have different bosses who answer to different mangers above them until they reach the person responsible for running the company. So, many people are responsible for the company doing well, and this also means that many people will know about potential wrongdoings by their managers and people running the company.

Two types of protection from whistleblower retaliation

Employees in California are protected against many actions by their employers. Employers cannot discriminate against employees for various protected reasons such as their age, disability, race, religion, gender and many other reasons. They are also protected against sexual harassment and hostile work environments. Employers must also follow wage and hour laws ensuring that employees are paid appropriately for all of the hours that they work for the employer.

How OSHA determines whether retaliation occurred

It is important to try and keep people safe in California. As a result, there are traffic laws to try and reduce traffic accidents, laws that property owners must follow to keep people on their property safe and many laws to keep workers safe while they work. Many of the laws regarding workplace safety are regulated by OSHA or its state-level equivalent.

There are many ways that employers retaliate against employees

When people in California do things to harm people around them, the people they harm may want to get back at them. No one likes when people do things to them, especially those they trust to keep their best interests in mind.

Healthcare employees encouraged to report violations

When Californians are hurt or sick, they go to various healthcare facilities to determine what is wrong and to try and heal from their injuries and illness. In order to ensure this happens, there are many different regulations that healthcare facilities must follow. These regulations try to ensure that the facility is clean and the patients are safe.
