Whistleblower's Act Cases in Fort Myers

In an effort to protect prevent state and local government agencies from retaliating against employees who report criminal activity, Florida enacted the Whistleblower's Act in 1986. Federal law also protects whistleblowers, under OSHA. These laws protect employees of companies contracted with the federal, state or local municipalities to provide goods or services. Retaliation for reporting wrongdoing can take the form of dismissal, demotion, reduction of benefits or reduction in seniority.

Filing a complaint must be submitted in writing and must be submitted to the correct administrative body, and our whistleblower protection lawyers in Fort Myers can help. If there is criminal activity taking place, you may qualify for a percentage of the settlement the company will be forced to pay for wrongdoing. At the state level, a lawsuit may be filed after an investigation has been completed, up to 180 days following the conclusion of the investigation.

In other cases, damages can be pursued for lost wages and benefits. Attorney fees may be ordered to be paid by your employer. To avoid any delays in your case, contact us so we can assist in protecting you in a whistleblower case.
