At Brockmeier Law Group, you can retain a wrongful termination attorney in Southern California who can help you sue the company for which you worked if it terminated you in retaliation for complaints you filed.

- the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA),
- the Sarbanes-Oxley Act,
- the Occupational Safety and Health Act,
- Fair Labor Standards Act,
- The Civil Rights Act,

State protections also exist but vary from state to state. You can find those for California and other states on the US Department of Labor website.
