Reporting or opposing unlawful activity in the workplace is one of the most noble yet problematic situations an employee will ever find themselves in. At Payton Employment Law, PC, we remain committed to representing whistleblowers who have experienced retaliation as a result of reporting such unlawful activity within the workplace or to government authorities outside of the work place or refusing to participate in it. If you have been unfairly retaliated against as a result of whistle-blowing activity, there is a good chance you are entitled to compensation. This compensation may consist of money damages for wages you lost and harm you suffered, money damages as punishment for your employer, reinstatement, and/or other kinds of specific relief. We believe that no one should be forced to work in an environment where they are subjected to retaliatory treatment. We are passionate about ensuring that employees are fairly treated and with respect and believe that such respect and fair treatment should persist notwithstanding an employee’s report of unlawful activity or objection to engaging in unlawful activity.
By being a voice and advocate for victims of workplace retaliation, Payton Employment Law, PC strives to not only vindicate the rights of the clients it represents but to also combat unlawful retaliation on a greater scale by bringing such unlawful conduct to light and fighting against it to effectuate change. If you have already engaged in whistle-blowing activity, or if you are considering it, we strongly recommend you contact us to advise you during the process, and to help prevent or respond to unlawful retaliation as a result of your decision to do the right thing.
