Whistleblower Protection Archives

Protecting yourself after making a complaint

Each year, many people take the initiative to make complaints against their employer. This could be for many reasons; perhaps they have witnessed their employer engaging in fraudulent activities, or maybe they believe that their working environment is unsafe.

What are Qui Tam Actions?

Sometimes an individual discovers that a business or entity is partaking in an action that is committing fraud against the government. This individual has no legal obligation to file a lawsuit in regard to this if only a passive observer, and, in the process, may incur legal costs.

You cannot be fired for reporting a valid safety concern

Workers often notice safety issues and still elect to say nothing. For instance, an employer denies workers proper fall protection gear, saying it's too expensive and slows down the job. Workers know they need it, but no one has fallen yet, so everyone stays silent.

Explaining state and federal whistleblower protections

Most of us have heard the term whistleblower. Many know what this term means. Many also are scared to be labeled as a whistleblower for fear of losing a job, promotion or other benefit at work. Whistleblowers are employees who report violations of laws committed by their employers. The violation can be general in context or have been committed against the reporting employee. Today, we will discuss the state and federal protections for whistleblowers.
