Representing Employees, Consumers, Whistleblowers and Servicemembers
Our experienced employment lawyers know that no employee should experience discrimination, harassment, or termination because of their race, age, gender, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or familial status. Our employment attorneys fight against sexual harassment and hostile work environments.
And our employment lawyers fight retaliation at work. It is illegal to retaliate against employees who file for workers’ compensation, take Family Medical Leave under the FMLA or other leave laws, or because they are a whistleblower (meaning they reported or refuse to do something they believed was illegal). Our employment attorneys are skilled negotiators, representing executives, managers, and all employees in contract and compensation issues. We are trial lawyers, fighting for employees across Minnesota.
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.
