New York City Whistleblower Retaliation Attorneys

Home/New York City Whistleblower Retaliation Attorneys

Employees who notice illegal activity occurring in their company should be encouraged to speak up. Fortunately, there are several laws in place to protect employees who do so. Unfortunately, those laws often don’t stop employers from retaliating against employees for blowing the whistle.

At Miller Shah LLP, we can help you understand whistleblower retaliation and how our New York City whistleblower attorneys can help.

What Is Whistleblower Retaliation?

A whistleblower is an individual who reports a company or organization for engaging in illegal or illicit activity. Various laws are in place to protect individuals if they choose to report such misconduct.  Whistleblowing can occur regarding a wide variety of violations, including  discrimination or harassment, unsafe workplace conditions or practices, environmental violations, healthcare billing fraud, securities fraud, and many more.  Reporting such activity is crucial to protecting the public interest and ensuring corporate accountability.

Whistleblower retaliation occurs when a company takes adverse action against the whistleblower for speaking out. It’s illegal for a company to retaliate against employees who come forward about unlawful activity, though this often doesn’t stop employers from doing so. When this occurs, the services of a New York City whistleblower attorney can become invaluable, providing representation and helping whistleblowers understand their legal rights.

Examples of Whistleblower Retaliation

There are various ways that an employer may retaliate against an employee whistleblower. Common means of retaliation include:

  • Termination of employment
  • Suspension
  • Workplace Harassment 
  • Unsafe or hostile work environments
  • Denial of benefits or bonuses
  • Demotion

Often, employees fear one or more of these consequences as a result of whistleblowing and, in some cases, are even deterred from coming forward with their knowledge. However, an attorney can help explain the laws that protect employees from whistleblower retaliation.

Legal Remedies for Whistleblower Retaliation

If a whistleblower believes she has suffered retaliation, legal action may be appropriate to seek compensation.  Potentially available legal remedies include:

  • Back pay compensating whistleblowers for lost wages and benefits after wrongful termination
  • Reinstatement to the whistleblower’s previous position or a comparable position
  • Compensation for emotional pain and suffering caused by retaliation
  • Punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from engaging in similar activity (in cases of extreme misconduct)
