Federal and NY Whistleblower Laws
People who act as whistleblowers have protections under several different federal and state laws.
The Dodd-Frank Act, for example, protects whistleblowers who report violations of securities and commodities laws. These whistleblowers can receive up to 30 percent of the government’s recovery. In 2017, for example, one whistleblower received over $20 million.
A NY whistleblower lawyer can help ensure you receive any financial rewards owed for acting as a whistleblower.

If you act as a whistleblower and report fraud or illegal activities, you have legal protections.
Whistleblower laws protect people from retaliation, such as being fired for acting as a whistleblower. Those who experience whistleblower retaliation after filing under the False Claims Act, for instance, can receive double back pay with interest, front pay, and compensation for damages.
However, many whistleblower laws include a short statute of limitations for retaliation. Some Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statutes of limitations are as short as 30 days.
As a result, whistleblowers should reach out to a NY whistleblower lawyer as soon as possible after experiencing retaliation.
