If an employee acts as a “whistleblower,” calling out their employer for illegal or unethical policies, then terminating the employee would be illegal.
Fired for Reporting a Problem? We Can Help.
Employees may report or object to an employer’s wrongdoing that violates the law. If the employer fires or otherwise injures one’s career in retaliation for such reporting, the employee has a legal remedy for all damages suffered, plus punitive damages and attorney fees. This remedy also applies if an employee is retaliated against for reporting the wrongdoing of a co-worker or manager.
