Case EvaluationSpeak to a Whistleblower
Whistleblower statutes protect employees or applicants who are in the uncomfortable position of being warned by their employers to disregard wrongdoings of a company or organization. These employees often know that if they do not report the misconduct, they might be liable as well. Moreover, employers sometimes take unethical and retaliatory action against whistleblowers. Whistleblower statutes may prohibit dismissal or other retaliatory action against whistleblowers and may also provide compensation to whistleblowers.
There are federal whistleblower statutes as well as state whistleblower statutes. Each state has different whistleblower statutes and they do vary in a number of aspects. Some states statutes extend protection to co-workers who assist a whistleblower while others do not offer this kind of protection. It is important to know exactly what the statutes are for your state. The remedies and compensation that you could receive greatly depend on the whistleblower statutes for your area. Blowing the whistle on your company can often cause financial and emotional loss, so it is important to understand your rights and protection under the federal and state laws for whistleblowers.
