Miami Whistleblower Lawyers Protect Employees
While the definition varies somewhat by statute, the term whistleblower generally refers to an employee who opposes, refuses to participate in, reports, or threatens to report an activity by the employer that violates a law, rule or regulation. An objection to work practices that do not violate any specific law, rule or regulation, generally does not trigger whistleblower protection.
The law protects whistleblowers from retaliation in the form of adverse employment actions such as:
- Cut in hours
