Reporting Illegal Activity In The Workplace
If you suspect or have proof that your employer engaged in criminal activity or regulatory infractions, it can be extremely beneficial to seek legal advice before taking any action. At Donald R. Holben & Associates, APC, our lawyers can help you take the appropriate steps to “blow the whistle” on your employer while protecting you from retaliation. We can also help if you have already reported a workplace violation and face retaliatory action because of it.
Protecting Your Rights, Fighting For Compensation
Our law firm has been handling employment law claims since 1992. When people have been punished or fired in an act of employer retaliation, we become their legal advocates. Our goal is to help these clients secure financial compensation, including punitive damages (where appropriate), to address retaliatory actions by their employer, lost wages, significant mental suffering and general damages.
Our lawyers are equipped to address any type of retaliatory discharge claim, including those involving:
- Punishment for reporting your employer’s fraud or illegal activity
- Punishment for reporting Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations
- Punishment for refusing to engage in illegal activity as requested by your employer
- Punishment for reporting discrimination or harassment in the workplace
- Punishment for exercising your rights to engage in lawful and protected activity
Laws surrounding whistleblower claims and retaliatory discharge are complex and subject to change. Because our attorneys have a dedicated focus on employment law, we remain current on all legislation that may ultimately affect our clients’ legal positions.
