NYC Whistleblower Lawyers
New York & Connecticut Qui Tam and Whistleblower Cases
BLG's employment lawyers represent and advise whistleblowers and victims of retaliation in the workplace. There are federal and local laws that protect employees who report unlawful conduct in the workplace, and BLG can protect you if you are aware of something that you need to report, and make sure that your employer does not unlawfully retaliate. If your employer already has retaliated our whistleblower lawyers can fight to protect your rights and secure financial compensation for your damages.
Whistleblowing is when an employee “blows the whistle” or reports an employer for wrongdoing including fraud and other illegal activities. The law protects whistleblowers against retaliation by those reported and employers also cannot legally punish employees for filing complaints alleging harassment or discrimination.
Legally protected activities in the workplace include filing a discrimination claim or a claim for unpaid wages, a claim of fraud or reporting a suspected violation of law. Employees are also legally protected from retaliation when reporting a safety or important procedural violation in the workplace like one relating to patient or child care.
Engaging an attorney when involved in whistleblowing and retaliation situations can be important; the law often varies state by state and it is important to know and understand your rights and protect yourself.
Some things to consider in whistleblower cases are:
- Statute of limitations/filing deadlines – deadlines can be tight in such cases
- Internal complaint procedures
- Qui tam claims (Claims relating to misappropriation of government funds)
- Whistleblower eligibility for rewards especially in securities cases
