A whistleblower is an employee that reports that their employer is engaging in fraud or other unlawful activities. An employee that has knowledge of an employer’s illegal or fraudulent activity can face a difficult decision when they are contemplating reporting their employer’s wrongdoing because they are fearful that they could suffer an adverse consequence such as a demotion, reduction in pay or hours or even termination. There is a wide-range of protections for employees under both state and federal whistleblower laws.
We provide legal advice and representation to employees that may need assistance making a formal complaint, as well as to employees that have suffered an adverse action after they have reported employer misconduct. We also provide legal advice and representation to employers on how to handle employee informants or an employee who has filed a claim.
