Whistleblower Claims

Whistleblower Representation

The law protects employees who “blow the whistle.” This means an employee who reported to the government or a law enforcement agency that their employer is breaking the law. Employees may not be fired, mistreated, or otherwise retaliated against for “whistleblowing,” as long as the employee has a reasonable basis for his or her belief that the activity was illegal, even if the employer did not actually violate the law.

Whistleblower retaliation often occurs after allegations are made against a company, management, or employees for any number of crimes involving its work, including:

  • Medical billing fraud
  • Financial and accounting irregularities
  • Money laundering or embezzlement
  • Violations of EPA or other environmental laws
  • Misreporting affirmative action hirings
  • Misuse of company funds
  • Acceptance of kickbacks or other benefits and perks from suppliers
  • Reporting unsafe work environments

Our attorneys have extensive experience assisting those subjected to retaliation as a result of blowing the whistle against their employer at both the federal and state level.
