One of California’s top employment law firms offers legal representation to employees in the LA area who have been retaliated against for being a whistleblower.
BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representatives of the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. announced today that the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. provides representation to employees who have been retaliated against for being a whistleblower.
“In California, there are laws that protect employees who engage in protected ‘whistleblowing’ activities from retaliation by their employers,” said Michael Akopyan, founder and spokesperson for the Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. “Labor Code Section 1102.5 forbids employers from retaliating against their employees based on the employee disclosing or reporting information which discloses a federal or state statute violation, or a noncompliance with or a violation of a federal, state, or local regulation or rule.”
“If an employee complains about what the employee believes is illegal, to government agencies, or even someone with authority over the employee, then can be illegal for an employer to retaliate against the employee for that reason,” explained Akopyan. Akopyan further added, “An employer cannot retaliate against an employee because the employee engaged in protected activity.”
“Each situation is unique. We offer complimentary case evaluations to folks who feel that they have been retaliated against for being a whistleblower,” said Akopyan.
