Have You Been Disciplined for Whistleblowing?
Don't Accept Punishment for Doing the Right Thing
Whistleblowing is a common term that refers to individuals who report unsafe, illegal, or inappropriate things in the workplace. As expected, this can make employers upset. Some employers will file disciplinary actions against the reporting employee, harass them, or even go so far as to fire them. This is unacceptable, and if you have faced such abuse as a whistleblower of your company you have the right to seek legal help.
- If you have been disciplined by an employer for whistleblowing, you have the right to seek compensation from your company for:
- Lost wages
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages
- Lawyer fees
Refusing to Participate
Even if you refuse to engage in the inappropriate or illegal activity conducted by your company, you can be considered a whistleblower and may be harassed and disciplined as such. You should never feel as though you have to engage in activities that are against the law or activities that are harmful to others. You have a right to say no and report such actions.
