We protect employees facing retaliation.

There are protections against complaining about discrimination and harassment.

The anti-discrimination laws make it illegal to retaliate against employees who complain about discrimination or harassment by firing, demoting, harassing, or otherwise subjecting them to conduct which would discourage an employee from such conversations.

We defend truth-tellers.

Companies regularly strike back at individuals who tell the truth about them. Whistleblowers are often retaliated against, fired, demoted or given an undesirable job. We defend whistleblowers who go public with information their companies want to keep private.

These are not easy cases. The best defense for whistleblowers, therefore, is an employment lawyer who knows these laws, their benefits and their limitations, and is able to step in and protect the person from retaliation.

Call us if you have a question about whistleblower protections.

Whistleblowers expose companies they think are committing fraud or endangering the public. For example,

  • A scientist reveals that research has been faked
  • An employee complains about discrimination or harassment
  • A manager reveals environmental laws that are being ignored
  • A finance officer reveals falsified numbers
  • A health care worker complains about improper billing or patient care
  • An employee reports conduct that endangers public health and safety
