Can I Be Terminated for Reporting Unsafe Work Conditions in California?

At Romero Law, APC, our experienced employment law attorneys in Pasadena believe all California workers — no matter their positions or industries — are entitled to be employed in a safe workplace.

The reality is, no job is worth risking your safety or health.

That is why it is so important for workers to report unsafe working conditions immediately.

Filing a report with your employer should not be an intimidating process. Nor should you be required to show which safety laws or statutes are being violated. A simple, written report can be made in good faith to report an unsafe or unhealthy working environment anywhere in California.

What is more, all employees should feel confident their report will be reviewed without the fear of being punished for their role in highlighting the safety issues. The laws that prohibit retaliation and discrimination against Whistleblowers help protect your rights. We will help enforce them.
