As of January 1st, 2014, there was a significant change in the California Whistleblower Statute which is California Labor Code 1102.5, and the real significant change is it changed the definition of who is a whistleblower, and entitled to protection. Prior to January 1st, 2014, in order to be a whistleblower under the statute, you had to make a disclosure of a violation or alleged violation to a government agency or a law enforcement agency. But after January 1st, 2014, the whistleblower can be entitled to protection. The employee only needs to make the disclosure to his manager or someone with authority at the company for investigating alleged violations.
