If you have a whistleblower claim, contact us online or call us at (412) 338-1144.
A whistleblower is someone who suffers retaliation for reporting illegal acts committed by their employers. For example, if you witness discriminatory behavior in the workplace and report it to the EEOC, your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you. Retaliation may include disciplinary action, demotion or re-assignment, firing, or a reduction in salary. Whistleblowers have protection under the law and our Pittsburgh employment attorneys can help.
Protecting People Who Do the Right Thing
There are whistleblower laws at the Federal, State and Allegheny County levels. They protect people who report wrongdoing in any number of areas, including:
- Reporting environmental or OSHA violations
- Reporting corruption or bribery
- Reporting or speaking out against discrimination or sexual harassment
You should not fear adverse consequences for reporting the illegal behavior of your employer. If you have suffered retaliation, Rothman Gordon’s attorneys may be able to help you. We have assisted people in obtaining compensation for lost wages and benefits and reinstatement. You may also be entitled to obtain attorney’s fees and in some cases, compensation for your emotional distress.
Our employment law attorneys have years of experience standing up for both private and public sector employees who have suffered retaliation and discrimination in the workplace. If you have been terminated, disciplined or denied a promotion in retaliation for reporting illegal behavior, contact us online or at (412) 338-1144.
