Charlotte Whistleblower Attorney
The lives and careers of employees can be damaged by pressure from an employer to commit illegal acts. Employees have the right to resist engaging in illegal conduct and to report it without fear of punishment and retaliation. Whistleblowers perform a public service by upholding the law, as well as what is ethical and fair. Because whistleblowers assume a risk, and often must spend considerable time and effort pressing their claims, whistleblowers can be entitled to substantial rewards.
There are a number of laws that protect whistleblowers, such as the Whistleblower Protection Act, the False Claims Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the Dodd-Frank Act. There is also a state whistleblower law in North Carolina called the North Carolina False Claims Act. But these laws are complex, and employers often have a substantial interest in making sure that their illegal conduct never comes to light.
I understand that blowing the whistle on illegal conduct in the public and private sectors is never easy. I can help you navigate the complex legal landscape of whistleblower protection laws and help you protect yourself from retaliation by your employer. If you have been asked to engage in or have witnessed illegal conduct in the workplace, we encourage you to contact Charlotte Whistleblower Attorneys today.
