Whistleblower Complaint

New Hampshire Whistleblower Lawyer

Whistleblower – It can be difficult for an employee to come forward and report wrongdoing on the part of an employer for fear that their employers will retaliate, or even fire, employees for “blowing the whistle.” Fortunately, under New Hampshire law, employees who expose such wrongdoing are protected from retaliation. Our NH Whistleblower lawyers want to successfully resolve your claim.

An employer is prohibited from discharging, threatening, or otherwise discriminating against any employee regarding the employee’s compensation, terms, conditions, location or privileges of employment because the employee engaged in protected activity.  For many reasons it can be difficult for victims to decide to make a report and pursue their legal claims but time is of the essence because Whistleblower claim cases have strict time limits in order to pursue such claims.

  • The employee refuses a directive by an employer which violates any law or rule.

What Is A Whistleblower Claim?

In New Hampshire, there are generally considered two types of Whistleblower claims. The first type is a Whistleblower complaint filed under New Hampshire’s Whistleblower Protection Act. This process provides for the filing of a Complaint with the New Hampshire Department of Labor for what an employee believes to be a violation.

The second type of Whistleblower’s Complaint is sometimes referred to as a wrongful termination or wrongful discharge claim. The facts under certain wrongful termination claims relate to an employee’s refusal to participate in certain illegal conduct or an employee reporting certain wrongful conduct which results in that employee’s termination.
