Employment And Whistleblower Attorneys
The Employment Law Group® Law Firm: Employment and Whistleblower Attorneys
The Employment Law Group® law firm is experienced in protecting the rights of employees. We focus our practice on fighting for the rights of whistleblowers who report fraud and wrongdoing; employees who face discrimination in the workplace; and employees who have not been paid properly by their employers.
We represent all types of employees and take pride in our experience helping employees protect their jobs in the face of retaliation. For example, in the case of Shen v. Shinski, our attorneys protected the job of a whistleblower by obtaining a rare order from a federal court that prevented the VA from terminating a Title 38 doctor while her complaint was pending. Additionally, The Employment Law Group® succeeded in protecting a VA physician’s job by overturning her suspension.
The Employment Law Group® law firm recently reached a $400,000 settlement agreement and obtained a $282,000 jury verdict on behalf of whistleblowers. In addition, our attorneys represented a client whose allegations of corporate fraud resulted in a $57.75 million False Claims Act settlement. Due in part to our results and dedication to workers, The Employment Law Group® was named the Labor & Employment Law Firm of the Year by Lawyer Monthly.
There are many federal, state, and local laws designed to protect employees like you. Whether you have suffered retaliation because you did the right thing and spoke out when your employer violated the law or acted improperly, or whether you have information but are afraid to speak out, The Employment Law Group® law firm is here to help.
Call The Employment Law Group® law firm to schedule a consultation with us and, together, we’ll decide how best to protect your career.
Our Firm’s Practice Areas
Whistleblower Law: Protection and Rewards for Employees
No one should be punished for doing the right thing, especially those with the courage and integrity to blow the whistle on corporate fraud or other illegal activities. Congress and many states have enacted several laws that provide whistleblowers with both protection from retaliation and monetary rewards.
Our attorneys have experiencing representing whistleblowers who report:
- Fraud against the government including Medicare fraud and procurement fraud (qui tam)
- Fraud by publically traded companies, their subsidiaries and rating agencies (Sarbanes-Oxley)
- Tax fraud (IRS)
- Securities fraud (SEC)
- Commodities and foreign currency trading fraud (CFTC)
- Bank and mortgage fraud
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations
Additionally, our attorneys have extensive experience fighting on behalf of employees who have been wrongfully discharged by their employers. Many states and jurisdictions provide protection for employees who disclose illegal, unethical, or unsafe practices and who refuse to engage in illegal conduct.
