Sonoma County Whistleblower Awarded Damages
Sonoma State University Whistleblower
Recently, an employee of Sonoma State University made claims that he was harassed by members of the university’s staff for speaking up on a very serious issue: asbestos. When the whistleblower refused to stay quiet about the harm of handling materials that are infested with asbestos, found in many buildings on campus, his direct manager and superiors began harassing him in hopes that he drop the issue.
However, the whistleblower did anything but that, which eventually resulted in a suspension and essentially being forced to quit his job. Recently, and two years later, a jury awarded the whistleblower just under $400,000 for his pain and suffering due to the harassment at work.
