Standing Up For You In Whistleblower And Retaliation Cases
More and more employees are standing up and calling attention to the illegal activities of their employers, when they are discovered. This is called “blowing the whistle” and the reporting employee the “whistleblower.” Unfortunately, once an employee becomes a whistleblower, he or she is more likely to be retaliated against by the employer, up to and including termination. If you have been retaliated against due to your whistleblowing, or because you engaged in protected activity such as pursuing workers’ compensation benefits, you have rights and an experienced employment law attorney can protect them.
