Retaliation and Whistleblower
When an individual speaks up about illegal or unjust activities occurring in their organization, they should be rewarded and appreciated. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Indeed, all too often the organization will retaliate against the whistleblower. They may be harassed in the workplace, transferred to less desirable locations or positions, or simply terminated.
Some organizations act as if they are invincible and as if their power over their employees is limitless. Many employees accept this, or at the very least think that standing up for their own rights is fruitless. None of this is true, however. The law is on your side, and with an Indiana retaliation and whistleblower attorney from Leeman Law, you can make the law work on behalf of your rights.
If you are suffering from retaliation in the workplace because you truthfully reported prohibited or illegal practices, corruption, fraud, or any other form of criminal activity, Leeman Law can help you.
