Laws Against Whistleblower Retaliation

Retaliation for Speaking Up

If a whistleblower were to get fired for reporting employer fraud, that can be viewed as retaliation. Employer retaliation against whistleblowers is illegal and there are various bodies of law that protect against this.

There are four main types of whistleblower actions in which the employer may act out against. They are reporting the alleged fraudulent act against the government, filing the whistleblower lawsuit, testifying in depositions or in court against the employer as well as refusing to engage in the alleged illegal act at work. If you are an employee who has engaged in one of these actions and your employer has fired you, demoted you or harassed you, then you may have a retaliation claim.

Bodies Of Law Protecting Employees

Whistleblowing activities are protected by law. An employee can't retaliate against you. Retaliation can come in all forms and does not only mean being fired.
