What laws protect whistleblowers?

A variety of federal and state laws protect people who report illegal actions of their employers and/or refuse to engage in illegal actions at work.

Florida Whistleblower’s Act

This protects covered employees who object to or refuse to participate in illegal activity, as well as those who notify their employer in writing of their intent to disclose illegal activity.

Employees who cooperate with authorities investigating illegal activity are also protected.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002

This law protects whistleblower employees who disclose violations of SEC rules and regulations and violations of federal laws related to fraud against shareholders.

Dodd-Frank Act

This law protects whistleblower employees who report a potential securities law violation to the SEC as well as those who participate in a related EC investigation.

False Claims Act

This law protects whistleblower employees of government contractors and grantees and protects a broad range of whistleblower disclosures.

Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA)

The OSHA prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for exercising protected rights.

These rights include:

  • Filing an OSHA complaint
  • Participating in an inspection or talking to an inspector
  • Seeking access to employer exposure and injury records
  • Reporting an injury
  • Raising a safety or health complaint with the employer.

OSHA’s whistleblower authority protects workers from retaliation under twenty-two federal laws, including:

  • Occupational, environmental, and nuclear safety laws
  • Transportation industry laws
  • Consumer and investor protection laws

Whistleblowing Case Scenarios

John, an employee in the accounting department, uncovers evidence of embezzlement and financial fraud within the company. He courageously reports this illegal activity to the appropriate authorities or management, exposing the wrongdoing and protecting the interests of the company and its stakeholders.

Sarah, a worker on a construction site, becomes aware of hazardous working conditions and safety violations that put employees at risk. She blows the whistle, reporting these violations to the relevant regulatory agencies or superiors, ensuring the safety of her coworkers.

David, an employee in a pharmaceutical company, discovers evidence of unethical practices, such as the deliberate manipulation of clinical trial data or the marketing of unsafe products. He blows the whistle, revealing the misconduct and protecting the health and well-being of consumers.

Emma, an employee in a manufacturing plant, becomes aware of illegal disposal of toxic waste into nearby water bodies. Concerned about the environmental impact, she blows the whistle, alerting environmental agencies and initiating an investigation into the company’s practices.

Michael, an employee in a large corporation, witnesses repeated instances of discrimination and harassment based on race, gender, or other protected characteristics. He blows the whistle, bringing attention to these issues and advocating for a respectful and inclusive work environment.

Lisa, an employee in a marketing agency, discovers that the company engages in deceptive advertising or manipulative sales tactics to deceive customers. She blows the whistle, disclosing these illegal practices to protect consumers’ rights and ensure fair business practices.

Mark, an employee in a government contractor company, becomes aware of fraudulent activities, such as overbilling or providing substandard goods or services. He blows the whistle, informing government authorities about the fraud and safeguarding taxpayer money.

Rachel, an employee who spoke out against workplace harassment, experiences retaliation from her superiors or coworkers in the form of demotion, reduced responsibilities, or hostile treatment. She blows the whistle on the retaliatory actions, seeking protection and accountability for her rights.

Are you being harassed because of whistleblower activity?

As a whistleblower, you may have reported illegal activities or fraud on the part of your employer.

While this is often financial fraud, it can relate to other activities such as sales and marketing, Human Resources activities, or other illegal employer conduct in the workplace.

Broadly, it is broken down into four main areas:

  • Improper use of authority
  • Gross neglect
  • Abuse of duty
  • Gross waste of funds

Examples of cases that commonly require whistleblower protection include unfavorable treatment for:

  • HR professionals for refusing to take part in discriminatory hiring practices
  • Employees after they report a case of sexual harassment or age discrimination
  • Finance professionals who refuse to process fraudulent loan deals
  • Healthcare employees who refuse to participate in Medicare fraud

Standing up against this is not a reason for your employer to retaliate against you but it does happen regularly.

No employee should suffer being fired, being discriminated against or any other adverse retaliation from their employer for trying to do the right thing. If you are being discriminated against or are suffering from retaliation in any form, contact a Florida whistleblower lawyer for representation today.

Common types of retaliatory treatment include:

  • Termination of employment
  • Being demoted
  • Being forced to quit
  • Having hours or wages restricted
  • Not receiving benefits that other employees receive
  • Threatening behavior

The whistleblower laws can protect you against such actions from your Florida employer.
