There are protections available to Florida whistleblowers

When employees observe their employers committing some type of wrongdoing, they may be unsure of what to do next. Reporting fraud and various other types of illegal activities is important, but Florida whistleblowers know there could be repercussions professionally if they speak out about what they saw. This is why there are laws in place that protect the rights and interests of those who bring attention to illegal activities in their place of work.

There are many reasons why an employee may feel compelled to speak out about his or her experiences. It may become necessary to report work conditions that are in violation of certain safety regulations and placing workers at risk for injury. An employee may witness fraud, theft, illegal actions and mishandling of sensitive information that could place individuals at risk of financial loss. Often, employees feel pressured by employers to participate in the wrongful actions or to stay silent about what they observed.

Retalitation against an employee can come in many different forms. Perhaps the employee was passed over for a deserved promotion or was demoted to a lower-paying role. Whistleblower retaliation can also come in the form of discipline, harassment, subtle or overt threats, termination and more.

Florida whistleblowers will find it helpful to work with an attorney at every step of this process. This can ensure he or she does not experience retaliation or unfair treatment of any kind after doing the right thing. If there is evidence of retaliation that has already occurred, it may be appropriate to move forward with a civil claim.
