What Exactly Is Whistleblower Retaliation?
To file a whistleblower retaliation claim, you must prove that you suffered adverse employment effects for blowing the whistle. These cases are difficult because you must review all of the case details and build a compelling courtroom argument that proves the retaliation claim.
There are many actions that can count as whistleblower retaliation such as:
- Reassignment affecting prospects for promotion
- Reducing pay or hours
- Wrongful termination
- Denying overtime or promotion
- Unnecessary discipline
- Denial of benefits
- Failure to hire or rehire
- Intimidation and harassment
If you are experiencing retaliation, you need to document every interaction with your employer and supervisor. We recommend that clients copy their personal email in messages that pertain to their case. By copying your personal account on emails, you will still have access to your messages if you are terminated. You can always reach out to our attorney to find the best possible way to document your case details.
