When an employee publicly reports an employer’s illegal conduct, they are referred to as whistleblowers. Employees who blow the whistle often report fraud, illegal practices, or safety violations. Whistleblowers are protected against adverse employment actions from the company including but not limited to termination, demotion, and reduction in compensation. Strong laws exist to protect employees who do the right thing and blow the whistle.
It takes a lot of courage to stand up to the organization you work for. If you have blown the whistle or are considering doing so, please contact Work Justice to speak with an experienced attorney who can help.
