Dedicated Legal Representation When You Need It Most
It’s an all-too-common occurrence: While carrying out their standard job duties, a company employee discovers evidence that their bosses are engaged in illegal business activities. The nature of these activities can take a number of forms, such as mismanagement of public funds, infractions of workplace safety rules, improper storage of toxic materials, or another violation of the law.
Whatever the particular circumstances of the situation, the employee often finds himself or herself in a classic rock-and-a-hard-place dilemma. If they simply “look the other way,” their employer will likely continue with their illegal behavior, which, in some cases, can pose a serious danger to innocent parties. However, if they report the infraction to the proper authorities, they could face the wrath of their employer.
Luckily, there are laws in place that protect workers in the event that they decide to report their employer’s illegal practices. These are known as whistleblower laws, and our Atlanta whistleblower attorneys have the experience and skill to help protect you from discrimination and retaliation for blowing the whistle.
