Whistleblowers and the way employers retaliate

If you blow the whistle on your employer for any reason, you may have fears of retaliation. While you did the right thing by speaking out, there are concerns about what the future will bring.

Fortunately, there are both federal and state whistleblower laws in place to protect you. However, this does not mean that your employer will follow the law. Instead, they may decide to retaliate against you anyway.

It is important that you understand the common way employers retaliate against whistleblowers. This will help you pinpoint trouble and deal with it in the appropriate manner.

Here are some of the most frequent patterns:

-- An employee receives a demotion for reporting supervisor fraud.

-- The termination of employment after filing a complaint of harassment or discrimination.

-- An employee is fired after reporting a safety or health violation.

-- Discipline that follows the support of a report or complaint filed by another employee, often associated with sexual harassment or some form of discrimination.

Have you been retaliated against? Are you considering whistleblower activity but concerned about what will happen next? This can be a difficult spot, but that doesn't mean you should give up your rights.
