Understanding Whistleblower Retaliation Laws
Whistleblower protection laws exist to allow employees to report an employer’s illegal actions without receiving retaliation against them in the workplace. Unfortunately, employees may receive adverse actions from their job when they do this such as harassment from their employer or being wrongfully terminated.
Every employee deserves to feel safe in the workplace, and if you feel that your rights have been violated, one of our attorneys can help you file a lawsuit to see that you receive the fair settlement that you deserve.

What is the Difference Between Whistleblower and Retaliation Claims?
These terms are often used interchangeably, but these claims are often handled differently. Whistleblower laws protect the general population from abuse or safety violations on a grand scale with regard to public safety, environmental safety, or government or investor transparency. Retaliation laws are used to protect an individual from firing, demotion, or other punishments by his or her direct employer.
How Do You Prove Whistleblower Retaliation?
To prove whistleblower retaliation, you must be able to show that you were fired because of your complaint or report. Note that timing is important in these cases and the less time between your complaint and your employer’s negative action against you, the stronger your case is.
What Are My Options if I Am a Victim of Whistleblower Retaliation?
When you file a whistleblower retaliation claim against your employer, you may be entitled to damages that could include:
- Lost wages and benefits
- Compensation for physical or emotional pain and suffering
- Punitive damages designed to punish your employer for misbehavior
