This decision holds that some but not all claims for retaliation for whistleblowing activities, in violation of Lab. Code 1102.5, are not intentional acts for which insurance defense and indemnity is barred by Ins. Code 533.  In particular, under Lab. Code 1102.5(c), an employee is protected if he refuses to perform work duties if doing so is actually (not just reasonably believed to be) illegal.  The employer may reasonably believe the work duties are legal and have no intent to violate the law but be found liable if the employer disciplines the worker for not performing.  In that situation and potentially others, the liability under section 1102.5 is closer to negligence than an intentionally wrongful act for which there can be no insurance under Ins. Code 533.
