Perceived Whistleblowers

Adishian Law Group, P.C. founder and California Attorney Chris Adishian answers the question: “Are perceived whistleblowers protected under California law?”

Transcript

Under the California Whistleblower Statute 1102.5, actual whistleblowers, people who actually blew the whistle, are protected, and so are perceived whistleblowers. For example, if management believes that an employee blew the whistle on some violation, but the employee actually did not, and they mistakenly fired the employee because they believed the employee had made the report, that employee has protection under the Retaliation Statute under the Whistleblower Statute.
