No one wants to put their job in danger, even if an employer engages in unsafe or illegal workplace activities. This explains the rationale of various whistleblower protection laws, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, and the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989. These laws make it illegal to fire an employee who comes forward and blows the whistle.
If your employer retaliated against you for whistleblowing, our law firm will fight to get you justice. In fact, the compensation awarded in these cases can be sizable. Juries can be very sympathetic to the underdog, especially a worker who was wrongfully terminated just for coming forward and doing the right thing.
