Whistleblower receives $420K settlement

The Law Offices of Kesluk, Silverstein & Jacob have secured a $420,000 settlement for a client who was the victim of wrongful termination for whistleblowing. After our client witnessed what she reasonably believed to be child abuse by a co-worker, she reported the incident. Less than a week later, however, the plaintiff was fired.

A current supervisor for the defendant testified that based on the timing of the plaintiff’s report of child abuse and the plaintiff’s termination, the supervisor believed the plaintiff had been retaliated against for reporting the abuse. Whistleblower laws have provisions for protection from employer retaliation, but it is always a good idea to speak to your legal counsel before reporting any perceived illegal acts. Our Los Angeles employment attorney handles cases involving whistleblower retaliation as well as wrongful termination and employment discrimination.

If you believe race, age or a disability was a factor in your recent job loss and need to know more about how to prove discrimination, contact our Los Angeles employment attorneys today to set up a private consultation with our firm.
