West Palm Beach Whistleblower Attorneys

Protecting Whistleblowers in the Workplace

The term whistleblower has been coined to identify workers who have the courage to stand up to their employers’ unethical or illegal behavior. These individuals may report what they believe to be harmful misconduct to their supervisors, to company executives, or to state or federal authorities. Illicit activities may involve fraud against the government, such as Medicare fraud, tax fraud, or securities violations. It may also break laws concerning the environment, public financial policy, or selling to the military. Any business that threatens the health, safety, or welfare of the public through unethical practices may find itself prone to whistleblower reports.

A whistleblower may risk his reputation and future employability by reporting or refusing to participate in illicit company practices. They may also fear employer retaliation in the form of termination, demotion, transfer, or withheld bonuses or promotions. Fortunately, laws have been enacted to protect whistleblowers from these adverse employer responses. At Sconzo Law Office, P.A., our West Palm Beach whistleblower lawyers are passionate about defending the rights of these brave individuals.

Whistleblower Protections

Florida whistleblowers are protected by both state and federal laws and the agencies that oversee them.

Whistleblower protections include:

  • The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, providing protection for federal workers who report waste or corruption
  • The Sarbanes-Oxley Corporate Whistleblower Protection law, providing protection for corporate workers who expose various types of fraud
  • The Clean Air Act, which regulates air emissions
  • The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), responsible for safety in the workplace
  • Florida’s Whistleblower Act

Filing a formal complaint with your company or a government agency concerning what you believe to be wrongful actions should never result in the loss of your job or any other type of retaliation. These laws and agencies have been created to protect you, whether your whistleblowing consisted of making a complaint, refusing to participate in illicit actions, contacting a whistleblower hotline, or participating in a legal action against your employer.
