Whistleblower Retaliation | Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP

Retaliation Against the Whistleblower

Shedding light on wrongdoing is a noble thing – however difficult it may be. If you complain about wrongdoing and your employer takes some adverse action against you, you may have a powerful claim against your employer. Whistleblower retaliation in the workplace may occur if you are:

  • Excluded from decisions and work activities by management;
  • Ignored by your supervisor;
  • Harassed by a supervisor;
  • Terminated or demoted;
  • Passed over for a raise or a promotion;
  • Cut in pay.

Remember that not all retaliatory tactics are easily recognizable. You must consider all the circumstances of the situation before jumping to conclusions. For instance, you may have received a pay cut because the company is going through a hard time at the moment and you are not the only one who has seen a decrease in pay. However, if you do receive a pay cut after you expose illegal activity at your employment and no one else has received a pay cut, then it is possible this is a form of whistleblower retaliation.
