California law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report violations of the law to government agencies. But unlike most every other area of law, including wage and hour claims, sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination claims, plaintiffs have a very easy hurdle to clear in proceeding with a claim while conversely, the employer has a huge burden to establish that their actions were valid. This seminar examines those legal concepts in the context of a whistleblower case that recently went to trial in Los Angeles County.
