Whistleblower Retaliation

Are you a victim of whistleblower retaliation at work in New Jersey or Pennsylvania?

If so, we may be able to help. For 20 years, the Law Offices of Richard E. Yaskin has helped employees who suffer workplace retaliation to recover damages and protect their good reputations. An increasingly common circumstance is being placed in position to resist, refuse to participate or blow the whistle on fraudulent or unlawful conduct by co-workers, supervisors or employers. These circumstances place tremendous pressure on an employee who does not condone fraudulent or unlawful conduct.

In the late 2014 case of Hitesman v. Bridgeway, 218 N.J. 8 (2014), the New Jersey Supreme Court increased the burden on whistleblowing employees to point to objective standards when challenging inappropriate conduct. If an employee’s whistleblowing activity is not sufficiently supported by objective standards, an employee’s complaint may not be legally protected against retaliatory actions.

If you have or are planning to “blow the whistle,” the requirement to point to an objective standard calls for early consultation with an employment attorney.
