Detroit Whistleblower Defense Lawyers

 

When whistleblowers expose their employers’ wrongdoing, they may require protection from retaliation such as a demotion, denial of a bonus, or termination.

It’s an unfortunate fact that in today’s world, there are many companies that conduct themselves in blatant disregard of the law. Bringing a case against a large corporation can be frightening, but at the same time rewarding for employees who know that it’s the right thing to do.

What Is a Whistleblower?

A whistleblower is defined as an individual, often an employee, who discloses to a public authority (i.e., federal, state, or local government) information regarding wrongdoing, illegal acts, mismanagement, fraud, or other forms of corruption. Frequently, the whistleblower is an employee who is asked by his or her employer to do something that they believe may be illegal.

These courageous people occupy a wide variety of roles in a company, including:

  • Health care workers who are aware of fraudulent billing practices
  • Bookkeepers or accountants who are aware of financial irregularities
  • Plant workers who observe blatant health or safety violations
  • Stockbrokers who are aware of illegal trading practices
  • Drug representatives who are aware of unapproved marketing of prescription drugs
  • Government employees who are aware of illegal directives, practices, or procedures

Exposing Wrongdoing

Deliberate acts of wrongdoing, such as Ponzi scheme investments, health care fraud, or rigging corporate accounting books to hide financial issues have become common problems in corporate America. Sometimes it’s up to a person on the inside to expose the company’s bad acts, someone who can blow the whistle to reveal the truth.

If you or someone you know is aware of corrupt business practices and misconduct, you need a team of employment attorneys to help you do the right thing while protecting your job. You need a law firm known for obtaining compensation for employees who aggressively pursue and defend whistleblower claims in and out of court.

You need Sommers Schwartz in your corner. Call us today.

You are a phenomenal attorney.

You are a phenomenal attorney. I wanted to thank you for doing such a great job regarding this case. I have a new love for law and all that it includes. Thank you for one of the best experiences of my life.

WOW! – you truly have left a great impression on us.

My wife and I really appreciate all your help. You did a wonderful job with our lawsuit and you actually genuinely tried to help us again.

Your advice is very valuable to me.

Just wanted to formally thank you for taking the time to discuss the area of class action. I wish you the best with everything. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and everyone at Sommers Schwartz.

Our attorney was tough, very professional, and knew his stuff!

Our case was very difficult and challenging and therefore was very time-consuming. Each step of the way, Matt explained what was going on and what I could expect, and he always kept in contact through emails or phone calls. Matt is sincere, kind, and compassionate – he has become more than just our attorney. He is more like family!

I appreciate the team effort provided.

I would like you gentlemen to know that for those of us that have been violated and need legal assistance, we must often wait for justice in quiet desperation. As such, the words I used above “confidence and comfort” came only from you and your team.

Going through this process was a totally new experience for me, but the way you and your firm conducted it was certainly reassuring. Please extend my gratitude to all the people involved.
