Retaliation against employees for asserting certain protected rights is illegal according to federal and Florida employment laws. This means that action taken against an employee, including a demotion, change in work duties or termination, that are due to the reporting of sexual harassment, discrimination or other work situation is considered retaliation. We provide representation to individuals who have experienced retaliation on the job, and to employers who are accused of retaliating against an employee.
Whistleblower cases involve employees opposing or reporting illegal activities that are being committed by their employer. Qui Tam claims are often complicated cases. Generally, they involve the False Claims Act or another similar state law which allows for a private individual, or whistleblower with knowledge of past or present fraud committed against the federal or state government to bring suit on its behalf. We represent the interests of employees or employers that are at the center of a whistleblower or qui tam case. The firm often joins forces with another law firm to litigate Qui Tam matters. Our firm takes the time to explain these types of cases and ensure that your rights are protected.
