Wrongful Termination Archives

What you should know if you want to be a whistleblower

While the American workforce is becoming increasingly comprised of millennials, one thing stands the test of time: no one likes a snitch in the workplace. So sticking to the “company line” and not providing fodder to competitors and Internet trolls is highly important, even in 2016. So much so, that people may be genuinely concerned about losing their jobs if they speak out against fraud.

An employee's rights under the FMLA

The Family Medical Leave Act provides employees with an opportunity to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave within a 12 month period.

How pretext works in an employment law context

When an employer terminates a worker’s employment status, there is commonly a work related issue attached to it.

Common questions whistleblowers may have

If you are witnessing fraud by your employer, you may be ambivalent about speaking out against it. After all, you have a good stable, well-paying job, and these types of jobs don’t grow on trees. Even if you are not fired for speaking out, you could be marginalized and made to feel miserable for your purported transgression.

Is there such a thing as privacy in the workplace anymore?

Increasingly, we live in a world in which being connected is prioritized over personal privacy.
