GA Qui Tam & Whistleblower Lawyers
What Constitutes a Whistleblower Complaint?
Whistleblowing complaints focus on conduct prohibited by a specific law and/or conduct that may cause damage to public safety, waste tax dollars, or violate public trust in an honest, accountable government. Whistleblower complaints seldom include an employer's retaliation for complaints about personal dislikes or issues that affect only a single person. Whistleblower and retaliation claims are often discussed interchangeably but there are still some differences between the two. Many, if not most, of the laws that protect workers, such as anti-discrimination laws, wage and hour protections, and health and safety laws, also make it illegal for an employer to retaliate against someone who engages in conduct which the law protects. If your employer retaliates against you for whistleblowing for going against labor laws, they are breaking the law.
