Protecting whistleblowers from retaliation and discrimination

You have probably heard the phrase, "no good deed goes unpunished." This often-used phrase exists for a reason: Because it is true in many cases. One of the times when it is painfully true is when an honest and well-meaning employee decides to blow the whistle on illegal activity in the workplace.

We understand how difficult it is to make the decision to become a whistleblower. Even though you are serving the greater good, you are probably concerned about your treatment at work if you choose to move forward with your plans. Your employers and even your co-workers could try to retaliate against you for your good deed. Unfortunately, we have seen this happen all too often in our practice.

You might already know that it is illegal to retaliate or discriminate against you for blowing the whistle, but you might also believe that it will happen anyway. Let's be real here; yes, it could definitely happen. However, under The Michigan Whistleblowers' Protection Act, you can take legal action if your employer discriminates against you in any way.

You can also protect yourself further by acquiring a legal representative to work on your behalf. This ensures that you understand all of the state and federal laws concerning whistleblower retaliation. It also helps you remain prepared for any role you might play in an investigation resulting from your initial reporting of unlawful or unethical activities.

If telling the truth is as important to you as it is to us, then you will benefit from all the support you can get as a whistleblower. Please take a few moments to study our whistleblowers web page for more detailed information about retaliation and protection.
