Employment Attorney Describes Whistleblowing Discrimination
Employees who file complaints about health and safety in the workplace, injustice, coverups of wrongdoing and criminal offenses are considered whistleblowers. Since whistleblowers are filing complaints to improve the workplace environment, they are protected from retaliation under the law. Therefore, it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee because they expressed concerns for the company. It is also illegal for an employer to create a difficult work environment for an employee who filed a complaint. If an employer does wrongfully retaliate, this instance is considered discrimination and should not be tolerated.
If you have been wrongfully terminated because you made a disclosure or feel that you have been discriminated against by doing so, you may have a case for whistleblowing discrimination.
