A Tampa Whistleblower Attorney Is Important Protection/

Workers who identify wrong doing by employers and want to speak out may feel they need protection. A Tampa whistleblower attorney is the resource a worker needs to ensure they can safely blow the whistle without fear.

State and federal laws protect employees who threaten to blow the whistle on unlawful employer conduct or who refuse to go along with unlawful conduct. Feldman Williams, PLLC represents employees throughout Florida and Georgia in whistleblower litigation. Our Tampa whistleblower attorneys have helped workers who exposed wrongdoing obtain compensation for their sacrifices.

Florida’s Whistleblower Statutes

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 legal protections for whistleblowers. Fortunately, Florida has both a private employee and public employee whistleblower statute that protects such employees who suffer adverse employment action after objecting to unlawful employer conduct.

Did You Blow the Whistle on Fraud or Abuse?

Reporting the illegal actions of your employer can result in retaliation or wrongful termination. The public counts on whistleblowers, and that’s why there are legal protections in place for them. If unlawful actions were taken against you after you blew the whistle, the attorneys at Feldman Williams, PLLC have the experience to provide you skillful, aggressive representation.
