Federal and State Whistleblower Protections

Several federal and state laws protect employees who report fraud, crimes, and other violations that threaten consumer safety or health, employee rights, or financial integrity. Parrish & Goodman Law Firm has extensive knowledge and experience with these laws and how to use them to protect your rights and future.

The False Claims Act is one of the most essential tools taxpaying citizens have to end government waste and corporate abuse directly. It covers defrauding attempts that include:

  • IRS Fraud/Tax Evasion 
  • Overbilling Medicare/Medicaid 
  • Troubled Assets Relief Fund (TARP) Fraud 
  • Defense Contract Overcharging 
  • Pharmaceutical/Health Care Fraud 

Each of these violations also has a specific office to which they can be directed. Other federal laws offer whistleblower protections, including:

Florida Statute Title X, Chapter 112, Sections 3187-31895, known as the Florida Whistle-blower’s Act, protects employees from adverse actions relating to reporting violations of state law.

These laws guarantee protection when you object to illegal or unethical practices by:

  • Objecting to or refusing to participate in policies, practices, or procedures at work that violate the law or regulatory guidelines.
  • Filing a formal complaint with an official governing body
  • Participating in an investigation or legal action against your employer
  • Contacting a whistleblower reporting website or hotline

Knowing your rights and legal protections is critical. Parrish & Goodman Attorneys at Law works tirelessly to protect your rights in whistleblower cases. Our skilled lawyers use the above laws and numerous other protection strategies to shield you from retaliation or take action against those who would punish you for uncovering their crimes.

Objecting to and reporting fraud on any level should not lead to adverse actions that damage careers and harm your future. Schedule a free consultation today to understand your rights, including what type of reports could lead to significant financial awards.
