Your rights as a Florida whistleblower

Many people are unaware of the fact that there are state and federal laws in place to protect people who report illegal or dangerous workplace conditions or activity, also known as a whistleblower.

The laws surrounding whistleblower retaliation and protection can and do change from one state to the next. For this reason, it is important to know your rights, based on where you work as well as the facts surrounding your situation.

Here are some of the most common patterns regarding whistleblower claims:

-- An employer disciplines or demotes an employee for reporting fraud or some other type of wrongdoing.

-- An employee is terminated after he or she blows the whistle for sexual harassment, discrimination, or another similar act.

Anybody who finds him or herself in this position may be able to file a lawsuit in an attempt to reclaim one's position and/or receive compensation. The same holds true if people are afraid to speak up because they have been threatened with retaliation or feel that this will be the end result.

The Family Medical Leave Act, Florida Private Sector Whistleblower Act, Florida Civil Rights Act, and many others are in place to protect whistleblowers.

If you find yourself in this unenviable position, it is important to learn more about your rights as an employee. This is the best way to ensure that your employer doesn't push you around.
