Standing up to an employer to report that company’s illegal violations and wrongdoings can take a lot of courage. After all, the people who decide to blow the whistle on corporations can be putting their income, careers, and reputations on the line in their pursuit of justice. At DeToffol and Gittleman, our New York whistleblower lawyers help these individuals protect their rights and craft the strongest possible whistleblower cases.

Who Are Whistleblowers?

Whistleblowers can be any employee of a public or private business, including (but by no means limited to) the employees of:

  • Government entities

  • Political subdivisions

  • Public corporations

  • Private businesses

  • Educational entities

Generally, people become whistleblowers when they report a company’s wrongdoings or illegal violations to any law enforcement agency, government authority or a person with authority to correct the violation. Commonly, these wrongdoings or violations include (but are by no means exclusive to):

  • Violating any state or federal laws
  • Failing to comply with public policy and/or local regulations
  • Failing to abide by health and safety regulations
  • Fraud involving customers, clients or income

People can also be whistleblowers by aiding in investigations into alleged corporate misconduct or testifying at trials related to these investigations/cases.

• Retaliate against workers who become whistleblowers against them or who have been whistleblowers in the past
