Like other employment claims in recent times, we are seeing more retaliation and “whistleblower” claims against California employers. Employers need to know what to listen for or they can find themselves accused of retaliating against a “whistleblower.”

On April 12th, Lukas Clary, Meagan Bainbridge, and Jacqueline Simonovich of Weintraub Tobin’s Labor and Employment Group hosted a training session aimed at helping business owners, human resource professionals, and managers understand the ins-and-outs of retaliation, whistleblowing, and wrongful termination claims.
