Charleston Whistleblower Attorney

Facing Employer Retaliation in West Virginia or North Carolina?

As an employee, you try to take responsibility for your duties, work in conjunction with other employees, and mind your own business. However, if you happen to see something that you know is illegal or wrong, such as business fraud or sexual harassment, you may be tempted to report it. It would be nice if you could simply report the illegal action and see no blowback, but many employers or managers take actions to retaliate against their employees for reporting unlawful conduct.

At Hughes & Goldner, PLLC, we offer aggressive representation for employees who have faced retaliation for whistleblower claims or any other type of legal claim. Our Charleston whistleblower lawyers are dedicated to protecting your rights as an employee.

What Does a Retaliation Against Whistleblower Claim Entail?

If you work for a publicly-held corporation, a small private employer, or a local, state, or federal government agency, you may be privy to such things as attempts to violate safety standards, attempts to skip financial disclosure standards, or attempts to defraud the government. If you report these attempts or openly question whether company practices violate the law, you may be in a protected status. You should consult an attorney if you suffer retaliation or a wrongful discharge after doing so.

Examples of instances of whistleblower protection include:

  • Medical billing fraud
  • Medicare or Medicaid billing fraud
  • Construction billing fraud
  • Defense contractor fraud
  • OSHA Violations
  • IRS tax fraud
  • Violations of wage laws
  • Financial disclosure shortfalls under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
