Federal and State Laws Protect Whistleblowers
Legal protection for whistleblowers involved in internal company disputes over reporting illegal activity is a continually evolving area of the law. In the wake of the Enron scandal, many employees still fear losing their jobs if they blow the whistle on an employer for falsifying financial records or other forms of corporate wrongdoing. It is important for employees to know that laws exist to protect whistleblowers who report companies for misconduct, from corporate fraud or safety violations to criminal activity.
If you have reported misconduct by an employer, supervisor or co-worker, Sterling Employment Law will work to protect you from unlawful discrimination or termination by your employer. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of employees and to taking action against employers to help preserve justice in the workplace.
