Queens, New York Lawyers for Whistleblower Protection
Though it is illegal for employers to retaliate against whistleblowers, many workers who speak out face consequences, ranging from harassment to wrongful termination. In many cases, the purpose of retaliation is to send a message to other employees that they, too, could face consequences for speaking out. If you are planning on exposing your employer’s wrongdoing or if you have already done so and are concerned about retaliation, know that the law is on your side—and that we can help.
