New Hampshire Whistleblower Lawyers
Protecting Whistleblower Clients Since 1997
It can be difficult for an employee to come forward and report wrongdoing on the part of an employer for fear that their employers will retaliate, or even fire, employees for “blowing the whistle.” Fortunately, under New Hampshire law, employees who expose such wrongdoing are protected from retaliation. Our New Hampshire whistleblower lawyers at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. want to successfully resolve your claim.
Your Rights as a 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. 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.
Our whistleblower lawyers handle many areas of whistleblower complaints because an employee’s protected activity includes:
- Being able to report what the employee believes is a violation of any law or rule
- Being able to participate in an investigation or hearing conducted by any governmental entity or court concerning allegations that the employer violated any law or rule
- Being able to refuse a directive by an employer which violates any law or rule
Insurance companies and employers know our reputation for successful results for our clients. This gives us leverage to get you the compensation you deserve for your whistleblower claim. If you have been victimized for reporting violations on the job, our New Hampshire whistleblower lawyers have years of experience in successfully handling whistleblower claims, and can represent you against your employer and the insurance company at the NH Department of Labor or in court.
