Employees have the right to speak up and make violations of laws, rules and regulations known when a company fails to follow state or federal law, or takes action in opposition to established law.
Whistleblower protection laws protect employees, by safeguarding them against retaliatory acts following the report of a violation of a state or federal law, rule or regulation. These protections include any reports made internally (i.e. to a workplace supervisor or other decision maker) or externally, such as in a public hearing or investigation so long as the complaint involves a state or federal law, rule or regulation. Florida law also protects employees who disclose violations even if they do so beyond their regular/official role. Our law firm actively represents whistleblowers who experience retaliation for reporting violations of laws, rule or regulations.
