Wells Fargo Whistleblowers Fired in Retaliation

October 5th, 2016

Illegal banking and sales tactics have led to the termination of 5,300 Wells Fargo employees since the scandal of the bank’s unethical banking practices came to light; however, several former Wells Fargo employees have recently come forward alleging that the bank retaliated against them for trying to do the right thing and speaking up about illegal activity while they were still employed.

A New Jersey resident formerly employed by Wells Fargo in Pennsylvania, was fired after he called an ethics hotline and sent an email to Wells Fargo’s human resources departments detailing the unethical sales tactics he witnessed at the bank. He alleges that he was ordered to open phony bank and credit accounts by a superior, but refused. Eight days after reporting the illegal practices, the man purports that he was fired. The reason stated for his termination was tardiness.

A former human resources official at Wells Fargo claims the bank had methods for retaliating against employees who reported illegal and unethical sales tactics. A whistleblower would be closely monitored for any infraction that could justify termination, such as showing up a couple minutes late to work.

Whistleblower retaliation is illegal and unacceptable. Federal laws are in place to protect people who report illegal activity in the workplace. If you have been a victim of workplace retaliation because you chose to do the right thing, contact Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C.
