In California, you are protected from employer retaliation if:
Examples of illegal employer actions include Medicare billing fraud, OSHA violations and illegal dumping of hazardous waste. Whistleblower protection only applies if the employer's actions affect someone outside the company. Ifan employee steals from the company, and you report the theft, you are not protected.
You are protected as a whistleblower any time you have a reasonable suspicion your employer violated the law. You do not have to be right.
