Retaliation and Whistleblower Claims

A wide range of laws both at the state and federal level protect employees from retaliation when they raise various workplace issues with their employers and/or governmental agencies.  For employees, our attorneys are skilled in determining which state or federal laws are best suited to the client’s situation.  We also defend employers against retaliation and whistleblower claims.  As always, our policy is to avoid the potential for such claims by advising clients on modifying existing policies and procedures or putting in place new internal control mechanisms designed to reduce potential claims.
