WHISTLEBLOWER

Whistleblower cases are similar in some aspects to Retaliation cases. However, they are also very unique. Whistleblower matters arise when employees report issues covered by Whistleblower protection laws to internal employer authorities, unions, or government agencies concerning, for instance, violation of safety laws, fraud and misuse of government funds, and environmental compliance violations.  

The information provided by whistleblowers often leads to serious problems for their employers, and as a result, whistleblowers often experience the worst kinds of treatment from their employers. In addition to the usual forms of retaliation such as demotion, harassment, and termination from employment, the employer will often try to see that the employee never gets another job again in his or her field of work.

If you have reported your employer for issues such as violating safety laws or misusing/stealing government money, it is imperative that you contact our firm. In some instances, the time limit on asserting your rights can be as short as 30 days.
