Understanding Retaliation And Whistleblower Lawsuits

If something happens to you at work that you believe is wrong or you notice illegal activity at work, and you report it, your employer cannot retaliate against you. Some of the most common retaliations are:

  • Getting fired or demoted after reporting misconduct
  • Suffering poor treatment from co-workers or management after reporting misconduct
  • Having your job duties changed because of reporting misconduct

If you have been retaliated at work, you have the right to seek justice. We will be by your side during the entire process and help you enforce your rights.


A whistleblower is someone who reports illegal activities done by their company or by a supervisor. A whistleblower also reports illegal activity from government employees or entities. There is nothing wrong with you taking action into your own hands and reporting these activities to management. Moreover, you do not need to know for certain whether the misconduct is illegal. All that is required is that you have a reasonable basis for your belief that the conduct you are complaining about is improper. We understand how complicated these cases can be. We will take the time to comb through the case and plan a course of action.

There are federal and state laws that lay out protections for whistleblowers. We understand the laws and will do what we can to make sure you are protected. We will stand by you and seek to obtain the best results possible for you.
