Legal Help With Whistleblower Claims in Miami

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:

  • Termination
  • Demotion
  • Cut in hours
  • Transfer
  • Reprimands

Are There Any Other Forms of Retaliation That Are Prohibited?

Retaliation for filing (or attempts to claim) workers’ compensation (injury on the job) is prohibited.

Florida law protects employees from retaliation for filing or attempting to claim a right, such as lost wages for days unable to work due to injury or the right to see a doctor, are protected under Florida workers’ compensation laws.
