Anti-retaliation and whistleblower laws protect employees and help them to do the right thing by shining light on unlawful activity in the workplace. If an employee is aware of discrimination, harassment, illegal pay practices, or unsafe work conditions, that employee has a right to report the unlawful conduct to the employer, and not be retaliated against for doing so.
When an employer learns of unlawful activity in its workplace, they should immediately address the situation. Unfortunately, some employers don’t do the right thing, and instead retaliate against their employees for reporting unlawful activity. If you believe this has happened to you, you should contact the whistleblower lawyer team at Lalak LLC for a free consultation.
State and federal laws protect whistleblowers against retaliation by their employer in the form of wrongful discharge or other adverse employment actions. These protections prohibit employers from terminating, demoting, reassigning, or failing to promote an employee who has reported unlawful conduct and restrict an employer from otherwise taking action against the whistleblower.
