Whistleblower – Employee Protection
and Statute of Limitations
In addition to potential awards under “Qui Tam” lawsuit provisions, environmental whistleblowers are also covered by job protections included in seven major laws for employees who expose alleged violations by their corporate employers:
- Clean Air Act
- Toxic Substances Act
- Clean Water Act
- Atomic Energy Act
- Solid Waste Act
- Safe Drinking Water Act
- Superfund Act (CERCLA)
To seek redress for retaliation on the job or wrongful termination if an employee reports violations to the EPA or other law enforcement agency, they MUST file a written claim with the Department of Labor within 30 days. We can help.
