Violation of Whistle Blowing Laws
In order to provide protection to the workers regarding employer retribution, the U.S. Congress included anti-retaliation provisions to the False Claims Act in 1986. This provision states that an employer who discharged, suspended, harassed, demoted, threatened or exercised any other way of discrimination against his workers only because of reporting his misconduct to the proper authorities can be liable for the Violation of Whistle Blowing Laws and should be given appropriate actions by the law in order to impart necessary relief to the employee.
Thus, if the employer is proven to commit the Violation of Whistle Blowing Laws, he will be obliged to reinstate his employee to a higher rank, give him double back pay, interest, financial damages that resulted from the discrimination and the payment for his attorneys. The whistleblower, however, should experience certain acts which are protected under the False Claim Act in order to prove his retaliatory discharge claim. Also, he must be able to establish that his employer terminated or suspended him as a retribution for the protected activities.
Furthermore, this retaliation claim must be filed in the proper Federal Government before time frame as set by the law. Violation of Whistle Blowing Laws is indeed treated by the government with much determination. This is in order to uncover the truth and expose the wrong-doing of people which causes danger and threat to others.
