“Whistleblower” Claims in Louisiana

HAVE QUESTIONS?

Have you faced retaliation from an employer for being a "whistleblower"?

In some situations, Louisiana law provides legal remedies for employees who suffer retaliation from their employers because of  being “whistleblowers.”  Simply stated, a “whistleblower” is an employee who reports illegal acts of the employer. That employer may be a public entity or a private company.

 

Whistle blowers can be described as:

 

1) Employees who disclose or threaten to disclose  a work place act or practice  that is in violation of state law

 

2) Who provide information to or testify before a public body conducting an investigation hearing or inquiry into a violation of law

 

3) Who object to or refuse to participate in an employment act or practice that is in violation of law.

 

Please contact us to discuss the specifics of your case or issue.
