The many types of whistleblower retaliation

As a whistleblower, you think you are doing the right thing. Unfortunately, there could come a time in the near future when you realize that you are living in fear.

Here's what you need to remember: You did the right thing by reporting some type of misconduct. Your employer and/or coworkers may be upset that you spoke out, but you shouldn't let anyone tell you that you made the wrong decision.

There are times when things can go from bad to worse for a whistleblower. This often comes into play in the form of whistleblower retaliation. There are many forms of this, including but not limited to:

  • Unlawful termination
  • Demotion
  • Being passed over for a promotion
  • Having job responsibilities taken away
  • Harassment or threats in the workplace

As you can imagine, all of these situations are very serious. For example, if you lose your job after becoming a whistleblower, your life is sure to change.

At our law firm, we want whistleblowers to realize that they have legal rights. You did the right thing and there is no reason why your employer should believe it's acceptable to retaliate. If they do, you need to learn more about your legal rights so you can decide what to do next.

With so many types of whistleblower retaliation, many people are often scared to speak out against their employer, even when they know it's the right thing to do.

In the event that you become the victim of whistleblower retaliation, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights and the steps you can take to protect your job.
