Labor & Employment – Whistleblower Claims
Federal and State legislatures continue to expand employee anti-retaliation legislation across a number of industries. Wicker, Smith, O’Hara, McCoy & Ford’s Whistleblower practice group works with clients in responding to investigations by state and federal agencies initiated by whistleblowers, and in representing their interests when compliance audits are initiated. We also have experience litigating retaliation claims brought pursuant to a variety of whistleblower statutory schemes, including the Florida Private Sector Whistleblower Act, the Public Whistleblower Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. We are able to provide training, counseling, policy and procedure design and review, and agency representation, securing leading industry and subject matter experts to ensure compliance and to vigorously defend these types of claims in a sensitive manner.
