What We Do

The purpose of whistleblower protection laws are to allow employees to stop, report, or testify about employer actions that are illegal, unhealthy, or violate specific public policies – without risking retaliation. The first step in reviewing a claim is to determine what statutes or common law actions may provide a remedy. A case may be covered under more than one whistleblower protection provision. Depending upon whom one works for and in which state one is employed, the nature and scope of whistleblower protections are varied. In addition to explicit whistleblower protection laws, employees may also be protected under traditional tort or contract law for damages resulting from retaliation for blowing the whistle.
