Protection Under New Hampshire’s Whistleblower
An employer is prohibited from discharging, threatening, or otherwise discriminating against any employee regarding the employee’s compensation, terms, conditions, location or privileges of employment because the employee engaged in protected activity.
The protected activity includes:
• The employee reports what the employee believes is a violation of any law or rule or
• Participates in an investigation or hearing conducted by any governmental entity or court concerning
allegations that the employer violated any law or rule or
• The employee refuses a directive by an employer which violates any law or rule.
If you have been discriminated against for filing a Whistleblower claim, our employment lawyers will fight to protect your rights. Many lawyers claim to have employment law experience. Also, some law firms try to have it both ways and represent employers and employees. Our loyalty is simple – we represent employees.
We understand the sensitive and difficult nature of these cases and the emotional upset caused by the harassment. We are dedicated to providing Whistleblower victims with dignity and respect. For many reasons it can be difficult for victims to decide to make a report and pursue their legal claims but time is of the essence because Whistleblower claim cases have strict time limits in order to pursue such claims.
