Protecting You From Wrongful Termination and Employer Retaliation
Employees have the right to report legal and ethical violations made by their employers. Federal and state laws prohibit employers from retaliating against their employees for “blowing the whistle.”

We have extensive experience handling employment litigation matters, and a proven record of success obtaining favorable results for our clients.

Wrongful Termination and Employee Whistleblower Law
Employer retaliation can consist of termination, demotion, failure to promote, a hostile work environment, and other adverse employment actions.
Whistleblowing lawsuits can arise when employees are retaliated against for:
- Reporting instances of harassment or discrimination
- Reporting illegal employer activities
- Refusing to participate in illegal activities
- Reporting business fraud
- Reporting environmental violations
- Assisting in an investigation of employer violations
Whistleblowing plays a vital role in protecting employees from harassment and discrimination, and holding companies responsible from legal and ethical violations that may hurt the public. If you have blown the whistle and are concerned about workplace retaliation, our New York whistleblower lawyers are here to protect your rights and help you explore your legal options.
