Have you been fired for “blowing the whistle” and reporting violations at work, such as the violation of safety standards, fraud, environmental regulations, or financial obligations? You have the right to fearlessly participate in safety trainings, to file a claim if you were injured at work, or to report a violation of state or federal laws.
Whistleblower provisions protect you from termination, demotion, failure to promote, reduced pay, write-ups, denial of benefits, threats, or any other act by your employer that may put your job in jeopardy. Your employer should not be able to fire you because you blew the whistle.
If you believe that you have been retaliated against for reporting violations at work, you may want to contact an employment law attorney to learn what rights you have.
