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 from retaliation.

At the Law Office of Keith M. Stern, our Miami whistleblower lawyers have extensive experience in all aspects of employment law - receiving the highest AV® Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®. If you've been discriminated against by your employer for your whistleblowing activity, we will work tirelessly to help ensure that your rights are vindicated.

Protection for 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.
