Public employees are protected against retaliation if they make a good faith report regarding illegal conduct committed by a co-worker or government entity. Under the Texas Whistleblower Act, workers cannot be fired or demoted because they have discussed unlawful behavior with a proper authority. Sanford Law Firm in San Antonio takes the cases of government employees who believe they have been targeted by supervisors after reporting a legal violation. Employees of certain private businesses might also have whistleblower rights, such as finance industry workers who identify fraud within their organization. If you’ve suffered job retaliation after identifying work-related misconduct, we’ll conduct a thorough review of your case and pursue appropriate damages when warranted.
Our experienced employment law attorneys seek justice on behalf of whistleblowers, which can include remedies such as back pay, job reinstatement and/or civil penalties against the violator(s). We’ll make sure you understand the key aspects of your claim, such as:
Even if you’re not sure that an adverse action taken against you was motivated by retaliation, our lawyers will examine the circumstances and outline your options. You have only 90 days to initiate a whistleblower complaint, so it’s important to obtain qualified legal counsel promptly.
