Some of the greatest heroes in history have been whistleblowers. Edmund Dene Morel was a journalist
who became a newspaper correspondent reporting on atrocities in the slave trade in the Congo. His
reporting led to greater human rights.
Recently, Alexander Vindman, a former U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and Director for European Affairs
for the Security Council, exposed corruption in the Trump administration when he testified against the
former president before Congress regarding the Ukrainian scandal. He has stated that he has
experienced harassment because of his honesty.
When chemist Erika Cheung was in her early 20s, she told a Wall Street Journal reporter that her
employer, Theranos, was perpetrating fraud against its investors and the general public by falsifying
medical test records. She has helped to expose one of the biggest scams in Simi Valley history. She
experienced stalking and harassment because of her bravery.
A company cannot fire you for blowing the whistle on them for illegal activities and should not
retaliate against you in any way.
Even though it is illegal, companies try to get revenge against whistleblowers all the time. The
company may try to demote you, or they may put you in unbearable working conditions to force you to
quit. They might make it impossible for you to reach certain performance goals.
Our legal team understands the contribution that whistleblowers make. You can sue a company if they
have treated you unfairly because you blew the whistle on them or because you filed a lawsuit against
them. Our attorneys have the training and experience to get you the money you deserve for the valuable
service you provided.
