Attorney Fired for Blowing Whistle on Bay Area Non Profit

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.
