Protecting Workers Who Do the Right Thing:
Whistleblower Claims and Retaliation Lawsuits in Florida
Employees who report fraud or illegal activities do so at the risk of harassment or termination. Both the federal government and the state of Florida offer special legal protections for whistleblowers. However, authorities may be too quick to believe an employee or former employee with an axe to grind, bringing unwarranted scrutiny or frivolous lawsuits against the company.
Feldman Morgado, P.A. represents employees and employers throughout Florida in whistleblower litigation. We have helped workers who exposed wrongdoing obtain compensation for their sacrifices. We have also enabled corporate clients to deflect unfounded whistleblower suits.

Florida Whistleblower Lawyers
Whistleblower laws may be invoked when an employee alleges adverse employment actions after reporting or filing:
- Fraud against the government
- OSHA safety violations
- Environmental abuses
- Civil rights violations (discrimination, harassment)
- Other criminal activity or regulatory violations
- FLSA (wage and hour) claims
- Workers' compensation claims
Our accomplished trial lawyers have litigated on behalf of plaintiffs and the defense, including federal whistleblower claims (Whistleblower Protection Act) and whistleblower claims under state jurisdiction (Florida Whistleblowers Act). We also pursue Qui Tam lawsuits, in which a person who exposes a company's fraud can claim a percentage of any money the government recovers in its prosecution.
