Retaliation & Whistleblowing

The law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for engaging in protected conduct. Protected conduct generally includes reporting violations or potential violations of laws. For government employees, protected conduct can also include First Amendment protected speech.

Retaliation & Whistleblower Attorney

Federal and state laws protect employees from retaliation for engaging in “protected conduct.” Protected conduct can include complaining about violations of discrimination or wage laws, reporting certain other kinds of unlawful practices, or refusing an employer’s instruction to engage in illegal conduct.

Protected conduct can also include First Amendment protected speech. Protected speech generally includes speech by certain public employees, in their capacity as private citizens, regarding matters of public concern.
