Representing Only Employees in Whistleblower Claims

An Attorney Who Doesn't Work for the Other Side

Although it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for reporting illegal or fraudulent activity, you are not automatically safe from retaliation. Whether your employer is ignorant of your right to file a report-which is known as "protected activity,"or simply thinks you can be intimidated into silence, you may be penalized for doing the right thing. To take advantage of the powerful legal protections for whistleblowers under federal and state law, you should work with an attorney whose primary goal is protecting your rights.

Since most employers will be represented by an attorney to defend against your claim, it is important for you to be represented by an experienced employment law attorney. Employment law and whistleblower actions make up a complex, specialized area of practice;therefore, it is advisable to hire an attorney who has substantial experience representing whistle-blowers.
