We Protect Whistleblowers
The law forbids Whistle Blowers from suffering retaliation.
Retaliation generally manifests when an employee files an SEC whistle blower action, qui tam or false claims act (FCA) lawsuit and the employer becomes aware of it generally when it’s unsealed. The employer may try to retaliate against the employee by demoting them, changing their work, or ultimately firing them.
There are various state and federal laws that protect whistleblowers, but whether or not you are entitled to whistleblower protection may depend on:
» Whether you blew the whistle the right way
» Whether the underlying False Claims Act (FCA) complaint was viable
» Whether the underlying SEC claim was viable
» Whether the underlying CFTC claim was viable
That is certain courts may hold that if the underlying whistleblower complaint was not viable, then the retaliation was permissible since the conduct did not fall into a protected activity.
