How We Can Protect You
It is illegal to fire or otherwise retaliate against someone who reports unlawful activities or participates in an investigation of their employer. These people are protected under federal whistleblower laws, and with the right evidence, retaliation against them can be prosecuted.
In order to prove your claim of retaliation, you must demonstrate:
- You reported unlawful behavior or participated in an investigation of the employer in question
- You suffered some sort of punishment, such as being fired, losing a promotion, or losing some other benefit
- The punishment occurred because of your protected activity
Proving retaliation is the most difficult part of protecting yourself. The Law Offices of R. Tamara de Silva can help you look over the evidence and build a strong case in defense of your interests.
