Whistleblowers serve an essential role in our country by turning in employers guilty of violating the law. The qui tam laws in this country allow people to recover compensation as a reward for doing the right thing. However, despite the incentives to blow the whistle on employer wrongdoing, many rightly fear consequences.
Whistleblower retaliation is illegal. Your employer may have retaliated against you if, after you blew the whistle, you find that:
- Your work schedule has changed
- You receive frequent reprimands
- Your employer transfers you to a new position
- Your work undergoes intense scrutiny
- You are terminated
Furthermore, employers retaliate against whistleblowers and those who have taken a stand against discrimination or other employment law violations. You do not deserve punishment from your employer because you did the right thing.
