Retaliation and Whistleblower

It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against you because you engaged in protected conduct.

Generally, employers cannot retaliate against an employee for engaging in protected conduct or "blowing the whistle" on actual or suspected illegal behavior. Under federal and state laws, protected conduct includes complaining of discrimination or harassment. Protected conduct can also include speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

If you believe that you have been retaliated against as a result of your protected conduct or blowing the whistle, contact our employment lawyers for help.
