New York And Connecticut Whistleblower Lawyers

Qui Tam An Whistleblower Attorneys 

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

If you have a whistleblower or retaliation claim against your employer contact The Boyd Law Group, PLLC at (800) 617-4254 or fill out our online Contact Us form to schedule a free case evaluation with an experienced whistleblower attorney to discuss your rights and legal options.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I wanted to give the Boyd Law Group a big thank you for all of their help and guidance through a rather difficult time in my professional career. I was wrongly terminated from my position of 5 years. Many other lawyers I initially called to take the case had no interest due to the unique complexity of my case. With that being said they made me feel like they had my back from day one. They took the time to explain to me all the legal side of things and the timeline it takes to run its course. Their fees were affordable and upfront; no hidden fees. Although their turnaround time to return emails was a bit slow at times they always kept me in the loop when they had updates and always cleared any decisions with me before submitting anything. They followed through and delivered, through their hard work and negotiations I was able to receive favorable compensation for the damages I incurred due to the wrongful/illegal termination. They were not afraid to take on the big corporate lawyers and win. Bravo team! To all those reading this; do not hesitate to give this team a chance to have your back, you won’t regret it!! Cheers, A satisfied client. From A Clinical Scientist With Whistleblower Claims

I've worked with Patrick a few times in my career. He's always been a very able partner in providing advice, a referral or fighting for me and my rights.

Stephen is an exemplary attorney. From the beginning, he actively listened to all my questions and concerns and responded with thoughtful and honest answers. He kept me updated on the happenings with my case, which I believe is an indication of his sincere interest in his clients’ legal matters. Stephen thoroughly explained all proceedings and legal terms in a helpful and patient manner. Whenever I reached out to communicate with him, if he was not readily available, Stephen replied via phone call or email within two days. From A Client With A Whistleblower Case
