San Jose Whistleblowers Lawyer
Employment Rights Lawyer in California, Washington State and Alaska
It is illegal for a company to fire you because you complain about or report improper or illegal company acts. The best time for whistleblowers to get legal advice and representation is before they blow the whistle. However, for many reasons, that's not always possible.
- Are you thinking of reporting illegal activity by your company, either to an internal department or an external government agency? Whistleblowers should get legal advice.
- Have you reported illegal activity, such as sex harassment or shorting customers, and think you are being retaliated against? Whistleblowers should get legal advice.
- Have you been fired from your job after recently reporting illegal activity? Whistleblowers should get legal advice.
The Law Firm of Kallis & Associates, P.C., has offices in San Jose, California, Vancouver, Washington, and Fairbanks, Alaska. Since 1997, we have built a reputation as a civil rights trial law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of workers and citizens against violations of their constitutional and civil rights in the employment law arena and other areas.
If you contact a civil rights lawyer before you blow the whistle, you can get advice about how to proceed in a way that best protects yourself and your job. If you contact an employee rights attorney after you have already blown the whistle, your attorney can respond on your behalf to actions your employer takes against you. And if you are fired, or your position is eliminated, or your hours are cut, your lawyer can explain how the laws protecting whistleblowers may allow you to get financial compensation via a civil rights lawsuit. By taking formal legal action, you may be able to get compensation for unpaid wages since the date of termination, lost future wages, and injury to your professional reputation.
