Standing up for what is right isn’t always easy, especially when you’re facing pressure from individuals or groups within your workplace. It takes a great deal of courage to report illegal, immoral, or unethical behavior. Without whistleblowers, large corporations are often able to conceal serious legal violations with little accountability. From unsafe working conditions to embezzlement, the law seeks to protect individuals who speak out, no matter what crime their employer has committed. If you have reported or plan to report illegal activity, a whistleblower lawyer can help explain your rights and fight for you in a court of law if necessary.
A whistleblower is anyone who speaks out against illegal, unethical, or discriminatory business practices. Employees of both private businesses and government organizations can be whistleblowers. If you possess a good faith belief that your employer is breaking the law, you are entitled to speak out without fear of the repercussions.
Whistleblowing frequently involves both retaliation and wrongful termination. You may qualify as a whistleblower regardless of whether you’ve been wrongfully terminated.
Whistleblower cases frequently involve sensitive information and require careful planning to prevent retaliation. When selecting a whistleblower lawyer, you should search for one who can become your partner throughout the litigation process. A whistleblower lawyer needs full access to all the relevant details of your case, and you’ll want to find trustworthy counsel who will advocate for your rights.
