Whistleblower cases occur when an employee has opposed or reported illegal actions committed by his or her employer, and has suffered some form of retaliation as a result. At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, our Honolulu whistleblower protection attorney is a committed advocate for employees. We believe that employees should not be punished for doing the right thing. That is why we work hard to hold employers accountable for their illegal acts.
Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of Employees
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we handle cases where employees have suffered retaliation, such as wrongful termination, after reporting illegal actions by their employer. In addition to wrongful termination actions, the law also protects employees from other retaliatory acts, including demotion, discrimination and other forms of harassment. We may be able to help you if you have suffered consequences following the reporting of illegal employer behavior, including:
- Family and Medical Leave Act violations
- Failure to pay overtime or minimum wage
- Employee misclassification
- Falsification of documents
- Billing fraud
Federal Government Qui Tam Claims
If your employer has committed fraud against the federal government, such as Medicare billing fraud, you may be able to pursue a qui tam claim. In effect, this means that you may file a suit on behalf of the federal government, which may then pursue a case against your employer. If the government is successful, you may be eligible for a percentage of any compensation awarded to the government. We can let you know more about these claims and whether this may be the right path for you to pursue.
