Representing Employees, Consumers, Whistleblowers and Servicemembers
No employee should be discriminated against, embarrassed, harassed, or terminated because of their race, age, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or familial status. Likewise, no employee should be retaliated against or mistreated because they filed a workers’ compensation claim, they took FMLA, or they reported or refused to do something they believed was unlawful.
Teske Micko represents whistleblowers, helping them obtain significant rewards under robust whistleblower or “qui tam” laws. Currently, there are five powerful whistleblower reward statutes protecting a very broad range of reports: The False Claims Act (commonly called qui tam law); the Securities and Exchange Act (including Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley or “SOX”); the Internal Revenue Code; the Commodity Exchange Act; and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act all provide significant rewards and protections for whistleblowers. “Blowing the whistle,” or reporting legal violations, is protected by state and federal law.
If you are an employee with direct knowledge or information regarding IRS Tax Fraud, False Claims or fraud against the government such as Medicare, Medicaid, and National Defense Frauds, Banking Fraud, Securities or Commodities Fraud, or Foreign Corrupt Practices, please contact Teske Micko to discuss your options.
Class actions are a legal process to hold corporations accountable when large groups of individuals who have been similarly mistreated are allowed to seek relief together, as a group or “class.”
