Employees have the right to speak up and make violations known when a company breaks either a state or federal law, or takes actions in violation of established public policies.
Whistleblower protection laws protect employees, by safeguarding them against retaliatory acts following the report 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 encompasses involves a state or federal law, rule or regulation. Florida’s laws also protect employees who disclose violations even if they do so beyond their regular/official role. This law firm actively represents whistleblowers who experience retaliation for reporting violations of laws, rule or regulations.
