Should You Speak Up About Unlawful Conduct At Work?

Many employers engage in conduct that violates the law, and they are not supposed to retaliate against you for speaking up or opposing this kind of unlawful activity.  "Retaliation" may come in the form of termination, demotion, suspension, other discipline, threats, harassment, or discrimination.  

 

Recently, an employee of Spine Frontier complained to her managers about unsafe products and practices endangering pregnant patients.  Instead of addressing her concerns, the company terminated her and continued to bill the government.  She then reported the problems to the Food and Drug Administration, which investigated and substantiated her claims.  She filed a "whistleblowing" lawsuit under the False Claims Act and may be awarded money for reporting fraud related to government programs.  In addition whistleblowers can be reinstated with the same seniority status, and receive double damages.

 

Our firm has successfully resolved cases for employees that were retaliated against for filing wage claims, taking medical leave, requesting reasonable accommodations, engaging in political activities, and complaining about discrimination, harassment, and workplace safety. Contact Bryant-Whitten - Attorneys for Employees if you have questions about retaliation.
