Whistleblower Retaliation

gen-imgEmployees that report illegal business practices or violations of the law to either their employer or the authorities are protected from being retaliated against as a result of their complaints. Whistleblower statutes also protect employees that have refused to participate in illegal activity when requested to do so by their employers.

An employee that complains or refuses to participate in any of the following may be protected from retaliation by whistleblower laws:

  • A violation of a state or federal law, rule or regulation
  • An abuse of authority
  • Conduct that poses a danger to public health or safety
  • Unsafe working conditions

Whistleblower retaliation can take the form of a termination, demotion, harassment, or other negative personnel action. Even if an employee reports what they reasonably believe to be unlawful activity, which after an investigation turns out to be lawful, that employee may still be protected from retaliation.

If you have suffered an adverse employment action after reporting or refusing to participate in unlawful or questionable business practices, contact us to determine whether you have a case against your employer for whistleblower retaliation.
