Attorney Fired for Blowing Whistle on Bay Area Non Profit
Posted on August 16, 2012 by Matthew Stanford
Attorney Robert Fordiani is currently representing former Positive Resource Center (PRC) attorney Jane Gelfand in a whistleblower retaliation case. After bringing the non-profit agency’s attention to a potentially harmful contract involving the agency’s Ticket to Work program, Gelfand maintains that she was constructively terminated as a result of her concern for her clients. Meanwhile, PRC suggests that Gelfand attempted to “bully” the non-profit by drawing attention to what she saw as a potential conflict of interest. The agency further argues that the plaintiff was already in the process of creating her own non-profit.
Details of the case were reported by The Bay Area Reporter, which can be read here.
