Retaliation And Whistleblower Actions
Retaliation and whistleblower actions are similar, as they both involve the treatment of an employee after reporting wrongful or illegal conduct. Retaliation cases could involve reporting discrimination or harassment. In general, a whistleblower is someone who reports certain illegal conduct of a company supervisor or of a public or government employee or entity. We are experienced in handling a wide range of retaliation and whistleblower actions and can best protect your rights in order to achieve positive results in your case.
Examples of retaliation include:
- Suffering a demotion or losing a job (wrongful termination) after reporting wrongdoing
- Suffering any adverse treatment by an employer or coworkers for reporting discrimination
- Adverse treatment or response for filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Suffering retaliation because you are a whistleblower, or reported certain wrongdoing of a government employee or of a company supervisor
- An employer who negatively changes terms of employment to affect the workplace environment or job duties of an employee
