Retaliation & Whistleblowing
Unfortunately, many people do experience retaliation and reprisal as a result of opposing what they believe to be unfair or illegal employment practices, participating in internal and external workplace investigations, supporting co-workers, or exercising other legal rights. Others choose to speak out on issues of public concern and are targeted by their employers because of such actions. These cases continue to increase despite increased protection for such conduct. Patty has represented individuals who have experienced such conduct and actively supports individuals who blow the whistle on safety and other concerns at work.
