In Minnesota it is unlawful for your employer to take adverse action against you if you “blow the whistle.” What this means is that if you report wrongdoing or illegal activity within your company to your employer and your employer turns around and punishes you or even fires you for reporting it, you may have a valid claim against your employer.
Barragry Law is committed to representing those who may have a claim under the Whistleblower Act – as your employment lawyer we’ll determine the best course of action in your unique situation.
The Minnesota Whistleblower Act protects employees who report illegal conduct to their superiors and are retaliated against because of it. In order to make your case, you’ll need to prove that you reported the illegal activity, that your employer took some sort of adverse action against you, and finally that the action against you and the reported violation are connected.
When something like this happens to you, it is wise to contact an attorney and protect your rights. You may be entitled to monetary damages, and a claim under Minnesota’s Whistleblower statute may also include attorneys’ fees.
