This presentation reviews applicable statutes, drills down on the elements of whistleblower retaliation claims, and analyzes recent cases regarding what constitutes “protected activity,” “good faith belief,” and the role of the judge as gatekeeper in a Labor Code Section 1102.5(c) claim.  In addition, the panelists will discuss available remedies, including innovative strategies to recover attorneys’ fees.  Plaintiff and defense perspectives are presented in an engaging, fast-paced, point-counterpoint format with practical examples and anecdotes that illuminate the most hotly disputed issues.

CLE credits offered.
