If you have noticed illegal or improper activity in your workplace, then you may be wondering how to report it to the proper authorities. This action of revealing wrongdoing within your organization is known as “blowing the whistle.” To the government and to the authorities, a whistleblower is highly regarded—however, you may face illegal retaliatory actions in your workplace for doing so, such as wrongful termination or discrimination in other forms.
At Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP, our Los Angeles whistleblower attorneys are here to represent you when illegal activity has taken place in your workplace.
HOW DOES WHISTLEBLOWING WORK?

If you have been mistreated due to reporting or threatening to report illegal activity, we can help protect you.
