Protecting Employees Who Report Wrongdoing:
Whistleblower Claims and Qui Tam Lawsuits in Georgia
Workers who blow the whistle on an employer's fraudulent or illegal actions are often subject to retaliation. State and federal laws offer protection and even financial incentive for this personal sacrifice. On the other hand, whistleblower laws can be exploited and abused, and the mere allegations of wrongdoing can be very damaging to a company and its leadership.
Feldman Morgado represents employees and employers in whistleblower claims in the Atlanta area, North Georgia and statewide. We have obtained compensation on behalf of workers who suffered termination or other retaliatory actions. We have also defended corporate clients in whistleblower litigation.

Atlanta Whistleblower Attorneys
Whistleblower laws were created to shield employees from wrongful discharge and other retaliation for choosing do the right thing by exposing corruption and calling out their employers. The federal Whistleblower Protection Act, the Georgia Whistleblowers Act and other state and federals statutes apply to employees who:
- Expose an employer's defrauding of the government
- Alert regulators to OSHA violations
- Report environmental violations
- Claim civil rights abuses (employment discrimination)
- Blow the whistle on criminal conspiracy
- Suffer reprisal for filing a workers' compensation claim
Led by managing shareholder Mitchell Feldman, our experienced trial lawyers have initiated and defended these lawsuits in state and federal courts, both public employee and private whistleblower cases. We also pursue Qui Tam lawsuits, in which the first person to come forward about an employer's fraud is entitled to a substantial portion of any civil damages the government recovers.
