Retaliation at Work
Whistle-Blowers and employees whom complain about discrimination at work or employees whom request worker’s compensation benefits, time off of work via the Family Medical Leave Act or unpaid wages are protected under the law from harassment and termination.
The law protects not only the employee whom began the complaint or request but also an employee whom is a witness, answers questions during a governmental investigation, or an employee refusing to follow orders by management that would be illegal or discriminatory to other employees.
If an employee is being harassed at work or is terminated for “whistle-blowing” they may not only be entitled to loss wages but also a percentage of any money the government recovers from the fraud or fines from each violation.
