Whistleblower Retaliation Archives

Workers are protected from retaliation for workers' comp claims

When people go to work in California, most just assume that they will go, do their work and go home. However, sometimes, there are accidents that occur at work. There are some types of jobs where this may be more common than others, but accidents can occur at almost any workplace. These accidents can also lead to injuries that force workers to miss time at work while they heal. During this period of time, the worker may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits though to help with their lost income.

When are employees protected from retaliation for speaking out?

There are many different types of work environments in California, and companies have various different types of internal policies. However, despite these different policies, each company must adhere to certain laws that protect all employees. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees based on the employees' race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and other protected classes. Employers also must ensure that their employees are not the victims of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Speaking out against doctors who receive illegal kickbacks

There are many different types of businesses in Los Angeles and many refer clients to other companies in other industries. This is common practice and a way that people can help each other out. Generally, these referrals are of mutual benefit for each company and good way of generating business. However, the rules for doctors are different. They are concerns that allowing these types of kickbacks in medical field can have detrimental consequences for the health care industry in general.

Employers retaliating against whistleblowers subject to fines

There are many different laws and regulations that companies in California must follow. There are many different reasons for these laws, but generally there are public policy reasons for them that benefit the public as a whole. So, the government and regulatory agencies have a specific interest in ensuring that the laws are actually followed by the various companies.

Reporting fraud involving local government's use of federal funds

There are many layers to the political landscape in the U.S., as well as in California. It starts with the federal government, then there is the state, county and city governments, as well as other specialized governing bodies. This is because there are some things that are unique to the local areas, and a local government is in the best position to handle certain aspects of it.

Prime Healthcare will pay $65 million for overbilling Medicare

Many people go to the doctor or to a hospital in California. It is inevitable that people will get injured or sick and require medical treatment. As these people know, medical treatment is also very expensive. However, if the person has health insurance, most likely they will not need to pay the entire bill. Many people receive Medicare as their form of insurance. Ultimately, the hospital or clinic will bill Medicare for the expenses, but in many cases, they negotiate with Medicare for how much the hospital will actually receive.

Former school employees get $3 million in retaliation case

People in California make money in many different ways. Most of them have a job and earn their income through that employment and most of the time the way that they make their money is a legitimate way to make money. However, there are some who abuse their position as a business owners and make money through illegal means. Many times people within the company are aware of the illegal tactics and may feel obligated to expose the corruption.

Former employee files whistleblower claim against telecom firm

The main goal of most companies in California is to make as much money as possible. Most go about this in a legal way and simply use marketing and advertising to boost sales. However, not all companies follow the legal ways of promoting a business and will resort to potentially illegal tactics to boost sales or gain an edge on the competition. When this occurs, employees within the company may be asked to participate in the illegal activity. However, these employees do not have an obligation to do this and can refuse to do so.

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.
