Pennsylvania Whistleblower Lawyer

Home/Pennsylvania Whistleblower Lawyer

In an era when corporate accountability is more critical than ever, whistleblowing has emerged as a pivotal mechanism for exposing unethical or illegal activity. By coming forward and revealing these schemes, whistleblowers play an indispensable role in safeguarding public interest and ensuring corporate integrity.

However, the path of a whistleblower can be fraught with challenges, notably the risk of employer retaliation. If retaliation does occur, such as demotion or termination, it may become necessary to take legal action. If you are a whistleblower facing retaliation from a current or former employer, the skilled Pennsylvania whistleblower team at Miller Shah LLP may be able to help.

Understanding Whistleblowing and Its Legal Foundations

Whistleblowing is the act of reporting misconduct — such as fraud, corruption, or other illegal activity — within an organization to the authorities or the public. The legal framework encouraging and supporting whistleblowers in the United States is robust and grounded in federal laws like the False Claims Act (FCA) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These statutes not only protect whistleblowers from retaliation but also, in many cases, incentivize them to come forward with information that can prevent harm to the public or the environment by providing for whistleblower rewards.

Whistleblower cases span various industries, revealing issues like securities fraud in finance, healthcare fraud, government contract fraud, environmental violations, and workplace safety hazards. While these cases are highly complex, the knowledgeable and experienced Pennsylvania whistleblower lawyers at Miller Shah can help you navigate the legal landscape.

Retaliation and Legal Remedies

Despite the legal protections in place, whistleblowers frequently encounter retaliation from their employers. Retaliation can manifest in numerous ways, including, but not limited to:

  • Termination
  • Demotion
  • Pay cuts
  • Harassment

Such retaliatory actions not only cause significant professional and personal damage to the whistleblower but also deter others who might consider exposing wrongdoing.

Fortunately, the law provides several remedies for whistleblowers who have suffered retaliation. These may include monetary damages to compensate for lost wages and emotional distress, reinstatement to their former or comparable position, and injunctive relief to halt ongoing retaliation or prevent future instances.

How a Whistleblower Attorney Can Help

Navigating the complexities of the legal protections and requirements for whistleblowers calls for specialized knowledge and experience.  The legal professionals on Miller Shah’s Pennsylvania whistleblower team offer invaluable support to whistleblowers through several key services:

  • Investigation: We can help you gather and organize the facts of your claim to present a compelling case.
  • Pre-Filing Requirements: Many whistleblowing statutes require whistleblowers to first disclose the misconduct to the appropriate government agency. Miller Shah attorneys can guide you through this process.
  • Litigation: We can assist in filing a detailed complaint in the appropriate court, build your case through discovery proceedings, and advocate on your behalf through motion practice and other court proceedings.
  • Negotiating Settlements: In many cases, a fair settlement can be negotiated with the employer, resolving the unlawful scheme and compensating the whistleblower for losses and ensuring measures are taken to prevent future retaliation.
  • Providing Guidance and Support: Throughout the legal process, Miller Shah’s whistleblower lawyers can offer advice and support, helping clients make informed decisions and understand their rights and options.
