Protection for Whistleblowers
Most of our clients did not set out to become “whistleblowers” and many do not feel that the label fully captures the spirit with which they chose to act. Like you, they are conscientious employees, managers and executives that set out to help their company recognize a problem, offered up a straightforward solution and found themselves improperly demoted or even fired. It is only in retrospect that many whistleblowers come to realize that their employer was committing fraud.
There are many laws protecting whistleblowers. If you are among those who have experienced retaliation and unfair treatment, with the help of whistleblower attorneys, you can pursue a lawsuit for financial damages, including double back pay and even punitive damages.
Blowing the Whistle Anonymously
Like everyone else, whistleblowers have families and obligations. You need to be able to earn a living and advance your career. Our whistleblower attorneys’ first priority is to provide protection for whistleblowers by helping you preserve your employment situation. You should not have to suffer professional repercussions for doing the right thing.
If you contact us early in the process, we may be able to help you make an anonymous claim. While certain situations allow for anonymity, others provide no statutory protections beyond the period of time that the case is under seal. Regardless, our attorneys will work to deflect attention from you.
Our whistleblower attorneys would be happy to provide you with more information about options for protecting your identity as a whistleblower. We treat all inquiries as privileged and confidential attorney-client communications even if we do not ultimately decide to work together.
Our firm works on a contingency basis, so you will never be required to pay out of pocket for our services.
