    Whistleblowing and Retaliation

    separator

    Federal and state laws protect employees that “blow the whistle” on corporate wrongdoing.

    For example, the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) prohibits an employer from taking retaliatory action against an employee who discloses, objects to, or refuses to participate in any conduct that the employee reasonably believes to be illegal, fraudulent or in violation of public policy. Such retaliation can include firing, demotion, failure to promote or other adverse employment action.

    This is one of the fastest growing areas of employment law. It has received significant national attention over the past decade as more and more employees are objecting to wrongful conduct in the workplace. McMoran, O’Connor, Bramley & Burns, P.C. is at the forefront in this developing area of law. The firm has recovered tens of millions of dollars for individuals that have been targeted for retaliation after speaking out against company wrongdoing.
