Whistleblower Lawsuits/Qui Tam Actions
The term “whistleblower” refers to an individual who reports corporate or business crimes, including fraud, that have been or continue to be committed without the knowledge of the victim. Unfortunately, whistleblowers are often subject to employment retaliation, as well as threats or acts of physical violence. Fortunately, whistleblowers are protected by Minnesota state and federal laws if they report an activity that they reasonably believe is in violation of the law or of public policy.

What Is A Whistleblower?
Whistleblowers may disclose financial fraud, violations of health or environmental laws, or anything else that is illegal or against public policy. This could also include sexual harassment in the workplace, misuse of company funds by directors and officers, illegal disposal of toxic waste or fraud in purchasing and procurement.
If you are concerned about reporting an activity that you believe to be in violation of law or public policy, talk with us about what you need to do to be protected. If you have already reported the activity and are being subjected to retaliation, let us stand up for your rights.
