Common factors leading to a whistleblower case

Even though you may be aware that there are whistleblower laws in place to protect employees, both on the state and federal law, it is likely that you don't have a deep understanding of how these could impact you.

An employee who reports or stands up to illegal activity or dangerous working conditions is known as a whistleblower.

There is no denying the fact that whistleblower protection can and will vary based on your particular situation, including the state in which you work as well as the activity that you are opposing. Even then, there are common factors that lead to whistleblower cases:

-- An employee is demoted or fired after he or she reports a supervisor for some type of wrongdoing.

-- An employee is terminated or dismissed for complaining about or reporting harassment or discrimination in the workplace.

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

-- An employee is terminated or disciplined for supporting another employee who has spoke up about harassment or discrimination in the workplace.

If you find yourself in one of these situations, unsure of what to do next, you need to learn more about whistleblower laws and protection in your state. There are laws that protect you, however, you don't want to do anything until you are familiar with your options and what is likely to happen as you move forward.

When you understand your rights, such as those protected by the Florida Private Sector Whistleblower Act, you will feel more comfortable with your situation. Browse our website to learn more about whistleblower protection and related topics.
