LAW TOPICS: Whistleblower Protections | Civil Rights


When a company or government entity is breaking the law, employees of that agency are most likely the ones to know about it first. Learn about how blowing the whistle on your employer provides you rights under the law to protect you from retaliation.

ATTORNEY WILLIAM R. CLAIBORNE:

“When businesses do unethical things, the first people who know about it are the employees who work there. The law provides protection for whistleblowers to come forward and reveal those unethical acts.

And if the company tries to retaliate against those individual employees, there are additional protections there.

What that whistleblower needs is a lawyer to fight for him or her. Because when a person has the courage to come forward and reveal those unethical business practices, that person deserves and needs a fighter: a lawyer who will stand next to them.”
