Whistleblower who was fired after reporting fraud settles

After decades, Americans have started to let their guards down when it comes to banks. More than likely you have a checking or savings account at your bank's local branch -- but not all people feel that banks are trustworthy.

Whistleblower wins jury verdict against retaliatory employer

Workers in New Mexico received a strong message that the law considers companies liable for damages when they retaliate against employees who report unlawful activities. A jury has sided with a man fired by his company, an asbestos removal company, after he blew the whistle on improper asbestos handling.

Learn more about what constitutes retaliation

Employers generally cannot discriminate against their employees. However, roughly half of claims submitted to the EEOC are related to what happens after a discrimination claim is made. If an employee in New Mexico or anywhere else is subject to adverse action after taking part in a protected activity, that behavior may constitute discrimination. Generally, there must be a link between someone partaking in the protected activity and his or her employer's materially adverse action.
