St. Louis, Missouri Whistleblower Rights Law Firm
The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley, located in St. Louis, Missouri, represents whistleblowers in claims made against their former employer and in reporting misconduct, including claims of illegal activities and misconduct.
In circumstances where an employer orders or requests that an employee perform an illegal act, an employee has a legal right and possibly an obligation to act as a whistleblower in reporting such conduct or initiating responsive litigation. Such conduct may include an employer seeking to have an employee do something that is illegal, fraudulent or make a false report.
In situations where an employee is terminated or retaliated against for reporting or refusing to act in a manner that public policy would encourage, such an employee may have a legal action against their employer. Missouri and federal laws prohibit retaliation against whistleblowers for reporting many forms of misconduct and illegal activity. As part of this legal practice, the firm provides representation to employees in retaliation claims for reporting employer overtime violations and minimum wage violations.
Whistleblowers who report workplace violations and unsafe work conditions to the Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) are protected from retaliation for acting in such manner to prevent dangerous work conditions. If you are terminated or retaliated against for reporting worksite dangers to OSHA, you may have a whistleblower claim against the employer for wrongful termination and retaliation.
