If Possible, Call While You Are Still Employed
Calling our office while you are still employed is beneficial to building a strong case against your employer. It is not unusual for authorities to ask you to “mic up” or use other strategies to gather additional evidence. Our firm will also review on how to use legal document retention to protect you from expensive counter-claims. Our goal with all of these measures is to help you maximize your compensation for assisting the government as a whistleblower.
Protecting Whistleblowers From Retaliation
Federal and state laws protect whistleblowers from being retaliated against after reporting illegal behavior. In fact, the False Claims Act has some of the best damages recovery available for employees who suffer retaliation. If you feel as though you have been demoted, discriminated against or even fired because of standing up for what you believed was right, our lawyers can help.
