Whistleblower Claims

Have you been wrongfully fired? Demoted? Have you been harassed at work after reporting illegal behavior? Did you blow the whistle? Get in trouble for following the law and doing the right thing? If so, you aren’t alone and you need to call Joe Herbert Law. It’s tough out there today and your job is critical, and getting fired is an entirely different situation than it was even five years ago.

Face it, we are our jobs, and a good portion of our lives is spent at work. Other than a person’s relationship with a spouse and children, the employer-employee relationship is one of the most significant in life. Think about it. What’s one of the first questions people ask at a party? “What do you do?” Sure, they also ask about marriage and kids, sports, maybe where you live, but as sure as night follows day, the job question always comes up. Our jobs are important to us, our families and a functioning society. This is precisely why our elected officials have created laws to protect you, me and us.

A job today is a precious and hard-earned asset that needs to be nourished, managed and protected. Having an employer that doesn’t like your gender, color, religion, sexual orientation or disability, maybe doesn’t like that you are pregnant or that you became ill and needed time off, etc., and fires you based on this dislike is crushing and turns your world upside down. When this happens, you must not be afraid to fight back and fight back hard. This is where I can help. I am the soldier that will fight for you against the company and its army of lawyers.

Being without a job in today’s economy is especially stressful because good jobs are hard to get. This is especially true if you were wrongfully terminated. If you believe you were fired without cause or are being retaliated against, please contact me. I am results driven and have helped people like you all over Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Scales of Justice!A fair, equitable and legally compliant workplace is a basic right protected by state and federal laws. I have been getting satisfaction and justice for clients for wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, and wage and hour violations in Ventura and Los Angeles counties for over a decade.

Employees who report illegal activity at work or employer wrongdoing are protected by state and federal laws from retaliation by their employer. If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated, denied advancement, had your wages or bonuses withheld, been slandered or have suffered retaliation at work in other ways for reporting illegal or unethical activity at work, you are protected by the law.

Whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliation for reporting wrongdoing in formal reports to governmental and regulatory agencies and, as of January 1, 2014, the California labor code protects employees who report wrongdoing to anyone with authority over them or any person acting on behalf of the employer, formally in writing or informally (orally).


There are limited time periods (deadlines) for filing claims that apply to legal matters. If you do not file in a timely manner with the appropriate internal office, outside agency or civil court, you may lose the right to seek redress for the claim. You should seek the advice of counsel to ascertain all of the applicable time periods.


You should immediately consult with an experienced attorney to learn more about what you can do to protect your rights and when the deadlines (statutes of limitation) expire in your specific case.
