Banc of California employee alleges whistle blower retaliation

Banc of California has been facing a number of different accusations recently. It started with alleged ties between the company's leadership and a financier who had been put in jail in New York. Then in August a former vice president alleged it was whistle blower retaliation that led to his firing after he voiced concerns about self-dealing and other conduct of the directors and officers at the company.

Protecting employees from whistleblower retaliation

People in California have many different types of jobs and work for a variety of different employers. Each company run their businesses differently, but no matter how they want to run it, every company must follow the law and regulations. Not all companies follow these laws though and some even force their employees to participate in the illegal activity. Many of these employees may not want to engage in this illegal activity, but may feel like they do not have a choice if they want to keep their jobs.

Protecting those who help enforce the Dodd-Frank Act

People within all industries in California try to make as much money as possible and sometimes it is easier to do this if they do not follow the law. The laws are in place to make sure the system is fair for everyone and sometimes there are advantages to not playing by the rules. After the recession, they was great concern over what led to it and the government felt that there needed to be much greater oversight over the financial system. As a result there were major changes to the Dodd-Frank Act to protect consumers.

The government in California, whether at the state, county or city level has the responsibility of making sure a variety of projects are completed each year. They are also responsible for keeping various public buildings, parks and other operations up and running. For many of these tasks the government has employees to do them, but in many instances it makes more sense to hire a private company do certain projects or aspects of a project. These contracts can be very lucrative for the private companies.

People are fired, demoted, do not receive promotions and have many other negative things happen to them at work. Many times it is because their work performance is not good enough or there is another employee who is more qualified, but this is not always the case. Some employers discriminate against employees because of their race, sex, age, disability, religion and other factors that are protected and have nothing to do with job performance. If employers fire employees because of this, the employee may have a wrongful termination claim against the employer.

It may be done differently, such as misusing various funding on personal activities, but people are still trying to make more money by breaking the rules.

Protections for those who expose illegal pharmaceutical kickbacks

These medical professionals also have many different options to use for medications, medical equipment and medical services. There are also many different pharmaceutical companies who can make a lot of money when doctors choose to use their medications, medical equipment and services.

Penalties for employers who retaliate against whistleblowers

There are many federal and state laws that govern what both individuals and companies in California can and cannot do. These laws have various purposes, but the general reason for these laws is to ensure that people are not harmed physically or financially. However, sometimes these laws make accomplishing certain goals of a company more time consuming or more expensive. This may lead employers to do certain things to break these laws or ask employees to do things which violate the laws.
