Whistleblower Retaliation Archives

Reporting off-label promotion of pharmaceuticals

There are many different medications that are prescribed to patients in California. There are also new medications being created and tested every day. It is important that these new medications be safe for the people taking them. Every new medication must go through rigorous testing and must ultimately be certified by the Food and Drug Administration prior to being marketed and sold to doctors and hospitals.

Protecting employees who report Medi-Cal fraud by employers

Medical treatment in California can be very expensive, especially for those who cannot afford to pay for private health insurance. Medical bills for procedures and surgeries can add up quickly and medications are also very expensive. However, they are also necessary for many people. In order to help people who need the medical treatment, but cannot afford it, these individuals may qualify for Medi-Cal to pay for these costs.

Whistleblower receives over $1 million after retaliation

There are many charitable organizations in California who provide very important services for people with few resources. These organizations provide food, shelter, medical help and many other services as well. While these organizations are generally not in the business of simply making money like many for profit companies, there are still many rules that they must follow. The most important is that they need to ensure that the people they serve are not harmed and that the people running it do not take advantage of them.

Time limits for filing retaliation claims for OSHA violations

There are many different industries and companies in California. These industries produce different products or provide various services and each is governed by various laws and regulations. Generally these laws and regulations are designed to ensure the safety of the employees who work for the companies and also to ensure the safety of the general public. Many of the regulations designed to protect the general public are in place to ensure that harmful chemicals and toxic material is not be put into the environments that people live in.

What are the potential damages in a whistleblower lawsuit?

There are many different types of companies in California and each must follow various regulations. Some of these regulations are specific to certain industries and some must be followed by every type of company regardless of the industry they are in. Many of these include violating the various laws that protect certain classes of individuals. These protected classes include sex and sexual orientation, age, race, disabilities and other classes.

Filing a retaliation claim with California Labor Commissioner

It is natural for people in California to want to retaliate against or get even with individuals who wrong them. However, sometimes there are legal ways to do it and sometimes illegal ways to do it as well. This is true for employers as well. Sometimes their employees do something that they do not like and want to get even with them as well. Sometimes their retaliation may be legal and sometimes it is illegal.

Defenses employers may use to defend against retaliation claims

Things often times go smoother for employers in California when their employees simply do what they are asked to do and do not ask questions. This is because some employers do not always follow all the rules they are suppose to follow. If employees complain about these practices or start asking questions, it could cost the company money. So, employers may have some incentive to retaliate against employees who make complaints either internally or to the proper authorities to ensure it does not happen in the future.

What evidence can one use to prove retaliation in the workplace?

Employers in California run their businesses in different ways. Some offer more benefits than others, some provide additional perks, have different policies for working at home or hours of work, workplace attire, pay and other aspects of the workplace. They also set the procedures and requirements for promotions and discipline. Employers do have significant freedom to do what they believe is best for the company, but there are certain laws that all employers must follow no matter the type of business.

Retaliation against employees who refuse to do certain actions

People in California like anywhere else risk legal consequences when they break the law. This is true for individuals and for corporations and other legal entities. Despite the potential consequences, some people and entities may feel it is worth the risk and do it anyways. Often times, businesses that do this are trying to avoid extra costs or make more money. However, employees of the company may not want to partake in the illegal activity and report the violations to the appropriate authorities.

Wells Fargo employee fired for planning to complain to regulators

Many people in California have their money in various banks. They rely on these banks to make sure their money is safe and well managed. Therefore, these banks are highly regulated to ensure that the banks are following the rules. However, some of these banks may take liberties with these regulations in order to make more money. It is important that regulators find out when they do and often times the best way for the regulators to find out is through the employees at the bank.
