Whistleblowers deserve protection from wrongful termination

California employers have broad discretion to fire employees under the employment-at-will rule. Still, if an employer discharges an employee for a reason that is specifically prohibited, the employee may have a wrongful termination case against the employer. One specifically prohibited reason is retaliation for filing a whistleblower claim.

We discussed an alleged whistleblower retaliation case not long ago. The case involves an auto executive at a California car manufacturer. The executive claimed he was terminated because he blew the whistle on unsafe working conditions and improper handling of worker injuries. The car manufacturer, on the other hand, claimed that the executive was fired for unrelated reasons. The manufacturer claimed that the executive had inappropriate interactions with other employees.

This case shows that employers often play hardball with employees who make wrongful termination claims. Employees will want to strongly consider having experienced lawyers in their corner when they proceed with a wrongful termination claim. The lawyers at Bononi Law Group, LLP are highly experienced both in handling negotiations with employers and litigating cases in court. We are recognized throughout California for the skilled representation we provide to our clients.

We have helped employees in thousands of employment and business law disputes, recovering a total of over $200 million for our clients. Everyone, from high-level executives to entry-level employees, is legally protected from wrongful termination under California law. We can meet with potential clients in an immediate, no-obligation consultation. Our website's wrongful termination page has more information on the services we provide to our clients.
