Whistleblower Rights

NY Employment Lawyers Protecting You Against Retaliation

Defend your right to a safe and harassment-free workplace. With the help of the employment law firm of Maduegbuna Cooper LLP, you can speak up about workplace violations that can cause potential harm to you, your coworkers or the public.

What are Whistleblower Statutes

Whistleblower statutes refer to provisions included in 21 different laws that protect employees from retaliation for reporting workplace violations. Administered by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), whistleblower statutes embolden workers to identify environmental hazards, illegal activity, safety violations, unhealthy workplace conditions, employee harassment and discriminatory practices. These statutes also encourage workers to participate in the investigations conducted by law enforcement, OSHA, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and other agencies. Our lawyers advise you on your rights under these important whistleblower statutes.

Reporting Discrimination in the Workplace

Your employer is not permitted to discriminate against you on the basis of age, disability, gender, genetic information, national origin, pregnancy or race. The laws that prohibit discrimination also protect you if you report the discriminatory actions to your supervisor, file a claim with the EEOC, cooperate in an investigation or otherwise seek relief. After we assist you with your initial discrimination complaint, we closely monitor your case for signs of revenge — often in the form of demotions, pay raise refusals, undesirable assignments, discharge or harassment — and pursue all available remedies if retaliation occurs.
