If an employee reports illegal behavior (such as fraud, theft or violating the Vulnerable Adults Act or OSHA regulations) made by an employer, and the employer retaliates, the employee has the right to take legal action. These claims, called whistleblower or retaliation claims, are complex and only an experienced attorney should handle them.
My Twin Cities law firm takes on whistleblower and retaliation claims throughout the Twin Cities. I focus much of my attention on handling employment law claims for employees and have a successful track record. While I am aggressive when representing my clients in court, I am straightforward and compassionate when working directly with my clients. I focus on delivering results, but I am never willing to compromise integrity or professionalism.
Whistleblower Claims and Retaliation in the Workplace
Minnesota law protects employees in situations where a violation of law is reported. If you suffer an adverse action as a result of reporting something in the workplace, you may have a claim against your employer. Common forms of retaliation include:
- Wrongful termination
- Pay cuts
- Hostile treatment
The specific legal issues in a retaliation claim are complex. When you work with me, I will take the time to explain the legal issues of your specific case and what actions can be taken in your claim. It is important to seek legal counsel in a timely manner. The sooner I can examine the facts of your case, the sooner I can take action to protect your rights.
