Whistleblower Law In New Jersey
When a worker lets authorities know about an illegal practice being conducted by their employer or company, the worker is considered a “whistleblower.” Because the government values employees who bring forth legitimate information about fraud against the government or any other illegal activity, laws have been enacted that provide financial incentive to employees who report such information, when the information is justified.
State and federal laws, such as the False Claims Act, Whistleblower Protection Act, Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act and other whistleblower laws protect employees, or other individuals with inside knowledge, who report corporate wrongdoing or illegal conduct of a business such as:
- Sexual harassment
- Tax evasion
- Safety violations
- Employment discrimination
- Health care fraud
- Government fraud
- Securities fraud
- Other illegal conduct or corruption
Retaliation For Reporting Misconduct
Employees who file a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit generally claim they were “overlooked” for a promotion, denied a raise, demoted for poor performance or even terminated. Ayesha can help you make it clear that your actions were within the law and legitimate.
