A ‘whistleblower’ exposes information within a company or organization that is illegal, fraudful, unsafe, illicit, or abusive. Speaking out against your employer takes a lot of courage, and as a whistleblower, you have rights.
In addition, most states, including California, recognize a common-law claim against an employer who takes action against an employee after he/she has reported a violation of the law. Over 90% of whistleblowers in America receive some form of retaliation from their employer or organization. If you have found yourself in one of these delicate situations, the team at Hershey Law is here to help.

Discrimination happens when an employer or supervisor treats one person differently than another based on protected characteristics such as race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religious beliefs, gender identity, and age. Gender discrimination can also be in the form of offering less pay to a woman.
