Skilled Representation For Whistleblower And CEPA Retaliation Issues
New Jersey whistleblower laws defined by the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) encourage employees to report improper, illegal or unethical conduct detected on the job. These statutes also provide workers with significant protection against potential retaliation such as discipline, demotion or wrongful termination as a result of whistleblowing.
Other federal statutes that protect whistleblowers are the False Claims Act, which allows whistleblowers to file claims for past or present fraud against the federal government, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which protects publicly employed people who report illegal procedures in their workplaces.
