THE FACE OF WHISTLEBLOWER LAW
Everyday brings new revelations of celebrities who have sexually harassed and assaulted their employees.
If today is the age of Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, it is equally the age of the whistleblower: the courageous individual who says “no!”, “enough is enough,” and exposes the harasser and predator.
Whistleblowers can reveal many different types of workplace misconduct. They can protest: sexual harassment; discriminatory pay differences between equally qualified male and female employees; on the job racial discrimination in promotion and discipline; and unfair wage and hour practices such as an employer’s refusal to pay overtime wages. Pharmaceutical employees can blow the whistle on illegal marketing of drugs, and employees for medical device manufacturers can expose the sale of defective devices.
The law protects whistleblowers from retaliation. Sanford Heisler Sharp represents whistleblowers throughout the United States and defends their rights.
