Helping Business Owners Avoid Whistleblower Disputes In Florida
Various federal and state laws have spelled out legal protection for whistleblowers – that is, for people who, in good faith, report wrongdoing by government or private companies or individuals. Examples of such laws include:
- The Federal False Claims Act (regarding the reporting of illegal actions within federal agencies)
- Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (regarding the reporting of SEC violations within private companies)
- From the Florida statutes, Sections 112.3187-112.31895, known as the “Whistleblower’s Act” (regarding reporting of illegal activities, within agencies or by independent contractors that pose a danger to the public)
Whistleblower protection laws provide for payments to whistleblowers, job protection, and/or protection from retaliation for disclosing illegal activities to authorities.
