Can Whistleblowers Be Fired?

Handling Whistleblower Cases Nationwide from Newport News, Virginia

Whistleblowers are protected, by federal law, against retaliation. The False Claims Act, which both protects and encourages whistleblowing, contains an anti-retaliation provision that allows whistleblowers to collect double damages and attorney fees for any act of retaliation from an employer. This does not, however, mean that whistleblowers are never harassed, threatened, or fired. That’s precisely why these champions of justice need a strong and experienced whistleblower protection law firm on their side.
