Whistleblower Claims

The broad case category often referred to as “whistleblower” cases actually encompasses many different types of claims under (1) federal law: the False Claims Act, allowing qui tam actions for a bounty or reward for reporting fraud on the U.S. government; (2) state law: the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act’s anti-retaliation, anti-discrimination and wrongful discharge provisions, protecting those who make claims for workers’ comp, or who help others with comp claims; and (3) local law: anti-retaliation, anti-discrimination and wrongful discharge protections, shielding local government employees for reporting wrongdoing. Shockingly, some such laws have very short deadlines, requiring quick legal action – as little as a matter of days, in some instances. Therefore, seeking competent legal help very early on becomes extremely important to preserve a worker’s rights.

Though sometimes the worker is fired outright, more often the employer simply “runs off” the worker by making life miserable – a “constructive discharge” for which the worker still may file a claim under certain circumstances. Only an aggressive, smart and strong attorney-advocate, who deeply knows whistleblower law in Texas and how to prove the client’s case and then access a fair judge and jury for that client, can ensure that these tough, hard-fought cases are prepared expeditiously, intelligently and properly.
