Q. “My boss is up to no good at work and I’m afraid of losing my job if I complain, but do I have any legal rights here?” A. “Yes, and though I’m known as a Ft. Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer, I know enough about Florida’s ‘Whistle Blower’ statute to be dangerous … to your employer!”

Posted by:

Florida thankfully has the “Whistle Blower” law to protect people like you who just want to work in a safe, law-abiding environment without fear of being fired or of experiencing any adverse employment consequences. The Florida Legislature was well aware of the fact that many employees experience wrongful termination and/or demotion and a host of other reprisals or retaliation measures, when they complain or try to correct the illegalities or dangerous conditions knowingly allowed by their employers. The law is found in Florida Statute 448, now known quite famously as the “whistle blower law.” This falls within that specialized arena of the law known as employment law and labor law, but hey, even a federal criminal defense attorney and Ft. Lauderdale criminal lawyer like me can know this good stuff and share this great news with you! Go get ’em!
