Pursuing Whistleblower Retaliation Claims
Once you become involved in any activity that is protected under the laws enacted under the Equal Employment Opportunity Center (EEOC), your employer is prohibited from taking retaliatory action against you for your participation in those activities. Now that your employer has chosen to break those laws and take adverse actions against you for doing something like whistleblowing, there is a very good chance that you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your employer’s actions.
