Whistleblower Retaliation

Richmond Whistleblower Retaliation Lawyers

VA Employment Attorneys Defending Your Right to Speak up

Employees working in environments where they witness events and practices that break the law may already fear what could happen to them if they speak up. That’s why whistleblowers who selflessly report or oppose such activity are so important. That importance isn’t overlooked by the law, either: When a whistleblower speaks up, they are legally protected against retribution for doing so.

At LawrenceQueen, our whistleblower retaliation practice helps whistleblower assert their right to:

  1. File a claim or private lawsuit against an employer that reprimanded them for blowing the whistle
  2. Seek fair and just compensation through legal action

Our whistleblower retaliation lawyers in Richmond are waiting to hear from you and respond with legal assistance to help you recover what you deserve.

If you were retaliated against because of whistleblowing, contact LawrenceQueen online today or by calling (804) 409-8689.

How Are Whistleblowers Protected in Virginia? 

Whistleblowers are protected by state and federal laws, particularly the federal Whistleblower Protection Act and False Claims Act, as well as various statutes in Virginia that include protections for many kinds of whistleblowers. Whistleblowing is considered a protected workplace activity in most situations, so protections that generally prohibit retaliation can also protect whistleblowers.

    Did You Witness Fraud against the Government?

    If you witnessed or have information about a company’s fraudulent activity against the federal government, LawrenceQueen can represent you in a “qui tam” lawsuit. When you initiate a lawsuit on behalf of the federal government, you are not just protected under the False Claims Act, but may also be entitled to a portion of the damages recovered if the lawsuit is successful.

    Fraudulent activity against the government can appear as the following:

    • Falsely inflated costs for products and services billed on government contracts
    • Falsely certifying goods that do not meet required specifications
    • Billing the government for undelivered goods or services not rendered
    • Marketing pharmaceutical drugs for uses the FDA did not approve
