Federal and State laws protect whistleblower jobs and provide for compensation when the employer retaliates. Firing, demotion, suspension, coercion, reduction in pay, harassment, threats, or being left out of projects or meetings, are some examples of job retaliation.
Miller Law Group has extensive experience and success in fighting to protect whistleblowers from job retaliation. It takes courage to report fraud against an employer, and a whistleblower deserves to be protected.
False Claims Act (FCA) whistleblowers, Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) whistleblowers and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) whistleblowers are all protected against retaliation.
When a whistleblower has been a victim of job retaliation, a whistleblower may be entitled to two (2) times back pay, interest, reasonable attorney’s fees, cost of litigation as well as a monetary award for special damages.
Many states have False Claims Acts which protect whistleblowers from retaliation by an employer. For example, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington DC all have laws in place that prohibit retaliation and protect the whistleblower.
