Whistleblower and Retaliation Claims
Let Our Miami Employment Law Attorney Protect Your Rights
Employees who take an ethical and moral stand by objecting to, refusing
to participate in, or reporting a policy or practice of their employer
that they in good faith believe is illegal, can seek protection under
various State and Federal laws. Whistleblower claims may take different
forms, but because
whistleblowers serve an important role in ensuring institutional accountability, the government has enacted specific provisions to protect whistleblowers
Similarly, in addition to the law’s express prohibitions against
disparate treatment based upon an employee’s age, race, religion,
national origin, gender, disability, and other protected characteristics,
employers are also forbidden from retaliating against employees who have
made an internal complaint or filed a formal complaint with an outside agency. A common example of this is Florida Statutes §440.205 which prohibits
workers’ compensation retaliation against any employee who has filed
a valid claim, or attempted to file a claim, for workers’ compensation benefits.
