Whistleblower Claims

A whistleblower claim involves an employee "blowing the whistle," or informing the authorities of an employer's violations in the workplace. These violations can involve anything from harassment and discrimination to wage and hour laws and criminal infractions. Really any legal violation by an employer could be a whistleblower claim if an employee informs the authorities.

Retaliation is not limited to informing the authorities about illegal activities. It can also include standing up for yourself and asserting your right to fair treatment. Common examples of this is an employee pushing an employer to provide adequate accommodations for a disability as required by law, speaking up to HR about harassment and taking vacation time for legitimate religious purposes. Any of these actions can result in retaliation from an employer.

You Have A Voice ∙ Protect Your Right To Use It

Many people are afraid of saying anything when they discover their employers are engaging in illegal activity. Understandably, they fear that their employers will fire them or otherwise retaliate against them. Retaliation of this kind by employers is illegal, and you have a right to protection in the workplace. Our attorneys will help you protect your rights.
