Sidney L. Gold & Associates support the right for employees to be able to report the illegal conduct or business practices of their employer without fear of retaliation. Every case is different and the main focus for our lawyers is to ensure the employee reporting the behavior is protected by the law and from retaliation from their employer. We urge anyone considering a whistleblowing action to consult our employment lawyers in Philadelphia before doing so to understand the legal process and the ramifications that can follow.
An employer that retaliates against an employee that reports their illegal conduct by terminating them, demoting them, threatening harm, or harassing the employee will be held accountable under the law. In most cases, the employee’s identity will be protected; however, if litigation becomes necessary, documents identifying the whistleblower may be called as evidence.
