Employment Retaliation

Employment Retaliation for Whistleblowing

Aggressive Protection from Houston Whistleblower Attorneys

When you file a whistleblowing lawsuit against your employer, you may be concerned about any type of possible retaliation. Although there are specific laws in place which protect your rights after a filing a whistleblower claim, it is understandable to be worried about your job security or work environment. The False Claims Act, Dodd Frank Act, Sarbanes Oxley Act, and the Whistleblower Protection Act all prohibit employers from taking any form of retaliation against whistleblowers. The government encourages whistleblowing, which is why there are protections in place for individuals brave enough to come forward to expose fraud.

If you have recently been fired or retaliated against as a result of blowing the whistle on your employer for fraudulent actions, there are ways that our Houston whistleblower retaliation lawyers can help you. At Correro & Leisure, P.C., we represent clients who have blown the whistle and are now being retaliated against. In order to prove that retaliation took place, we can help you prove that you engaged in protected activity (whistleblowing) and that you were then discriminated against. Even if you only investigated fraudulent activity or filed a complaint within your company and did not file a whistleblower activity, this may count as protected activity.

The anti-retaliation provisions in the federal False Claims Act prohibit employers from:

  • Firing their employee
  • Demoting their employee
  • Threatening their employee
  • Suspending their employee
  • Harassing their employee
  • Discriminating against their employee
