A: Your situation involves international employment and potential fraud, which may be subject to various jurisdictions, not just California law. U.S. federal laws like the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and others could be relevant if U.S. government contract money is being misused. You should consult an attorney experienced in international employment and federal contract law to explore your legal options, including potential whistleblower protections.
