Someone is considered a whistleblower when they report or take legal action against a company for fraud, illegal acts, or company activities that are dangerous to the public. Employers and governments – both state and federal – cannot retaliate against employees and sometimes others for raising matters of public – not just personal – concern. Not every complaint is “whistleblowing.”
What constitutes whistleblowing in the workplace can be confusing to employees. This is why it’s important to talk to a whistleblower attorney who can help you understand your legal rights under federal and New Mexico laws.
If you have witnessed unlawful activities at work, you may be able to pursue legal action. Contact Steve Granberg, an Albuquerque employment and whistleblower attorney to help you understand your rights.
