This treatment ranges from disciplinary action and negative performance reviews to denial of training, denial of promotions, denial of raises and termination.

Protecting Workers Subjected to Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is all too prevalent in the workplace. Employers have a responsibility to protect their workers from harassment, whether perpetrated by supervisors, coworkers, or clients. However, employees may fear retaliation or wrongful termination should they report sexual harassment. Employees sometimes may not know if their situation rises to the level of sexual harassment.
It is important to remember workplace sexual harassment:
- Does not need to be sexually motivated
- Can happen to any employee, regardless of sex or gender identification
- Can affect workers who are not directly targeted
- Can be perpetuated by co-workers, supervisors, and even non-employees involved with the company
Since 1995, we have stood alongside employees against sexual harassment. We can review your claim and advise you on your best route forward. Our attorneys are also prepared to take your case to trial and fight for your rights.
Federal law and the state laws of California protect individuals who report employer fraud related to the fulfillment of a government contract. The qui tam whistleblower laws protect employees from employer retaliation.
Qui tam and whistleblower cases involve seeking compensation for wrongful termination or other forms of employer reprisal toward an employee after the worker refuses to comply with an illegal directive or reports illegal activities.
Our qui tam and whistleblower practice extends to:
- Employees of state and federal government entities
- Employees of local government entities
- Employees of private businesses fulfilling government contracts
