Guidance and Advocacy to Protect Whistleblowers in New York City

If you have observed your employer engaging in illegal activities, it is normal to feel nervous about blowing the whistle. You may be concerned about retaliation, and worried that the reporting will affect your career.

Fortunately, the state of New York has a number of protections in place to ensure that workers will not suffer as the result of blowing the whistle. These protections prevent employers from retaliating against whistleblowers through termination and other negative actions.

If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on illegal activities, the lawyers at Taubman Kimelman & Soroka, LLP, are prepared to answer any questions you have about the process. When you contact our law firm, one of our skilled employment law attorneys will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your legal protections and help you take the next steps.

Protection For Health Care Workers

Under New York law, health care workers have a number of special protections against retaliation. These laws were designed to protect patients by empowering medical staff to report violations.

If you are a health care worker and you believe your employer is providing inadequate care to a patient, you have the right to blow the whistle. It may be necessary to notify employers and wait an appropriate amount of time before reporting the violation; contact our law firm for advice about your particular legal situation.
