Representing Employees, Consumers, and Servicemembers
No employee should be embarrassed, harassed, or terminated because of their race, age, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or familial status. Likewise, no employee should be mistreated because they filed a workers’ compensation claim, they took FMLA, or they refused to do something they believed was unlawful.

“Blowing the whistle,” or reporting legal violations, is protected by state and federal law. Companies cannot fire employees because the employee reported something illegal or refused to do something illegal. The Minnesota Whistleblower Act (“MWA”) protects employees from retaliation when reporting violations of state of federal laws or regulations, such as OSHA violations, banking regulations, pharmaceutical sales regulations, or health care standards. Many other laws, such as the False Claims Act (“FCA”), Sarbanes-Oxley (“SOX”) or the Dodd-Frank Act, also have anti-retaliation provisions to protect employees.
