It is illegal to take action against a whistleblower. A business cannot act against an employee who objects to company policy, files a sexual harassment suit, or reports illegal business activities to an oversight agency. If you have been disciplined or dismissed because you reported activity you believed was illegal, contact an experienced employment law attorney to advise you about your options.
RETALIATION IS ILLEGAL. CONTACT AN EXPERIENCED EMPLOYMENT LAWYER TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS.
Matthew Zandi, a former federal Civil Rights Prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice, represents people who have experienced retaliation for speaking out about illegal or unethical activities. His clients include those who have been transferred, demoted, terminated, or given an unwanted work shift. Mr. Zandi’s first whistleblower case involved a friend who was fired after he reported that a co-worker was being sexually harassed.
Examples of Whistleblower Cases:
- A loan officer was demoted for objecting to a mortgage company’s routine practice of inflating incomes on loan applications
- A dentist, employed by a dental insurance company, was terminated after notifying the department of insurance that his employer automatically denied initial claims
- Employees were fired after complaining to their employer about failure to pay overtime wages
- Employees who objected to routine over-billing of clients and reported other unfair business practices were transferred to a less favorable department
