We Fight Back Against Whistleblower Retaliation

We urge you to notify the Law Offices of Miguel S. Ramirez if you have been retaliated against at your job for reporting illegal workplace offenses. You are protected under California and federal whistleblower laws for reporting illegal conduct by your employer or coworkers, such as:

  • Financial fraud such as overbilling a government agency
  • Tax fraud by an employer
  • Bribes, kickbacks or embezzlement
  • A pattern or illegal discrimination (age, race, gender, religion, national origin, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation)
  • A pattern or cover-up of sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Widespread wage and hour violations, such as not paying overtime
  • Serious safety violations in a factory, warehouse or construction project
  • Illegal dumping or other environmental abuses
  • Other violations of state or federal law

Whistleblower retaliation takes many forms. It could be blatant, such as terminating you or demoting you. It can be more subtle, such as transferring you to a different office or division or suddenly giving you poor performance reviews as a set-up to firing. Miguel Ramirez formerly worked in employer defense. He knows what constitutes retaliation and can anticipate how your employer will respond to a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit.
