About Our Firm
Getting fired, being refused a promotion you worked hard to deserve, not getting paid for regular time or overtime hours you have worked, being denied a benefit claim by your employer, being retaliated against for whistleblowing or being subject to harassment or discrimination in the workplace can be a violation of state and federal employment laws. State and federal law extends many rights, privileges, and protections to employers, but never at the expense of employees who may suffer illegal abuses or injustices in the name of profits.
The Employment Law Group® law firm is one of the premier employment law firms representing individuals from all over the United States and around the world in EEOC, Sarbanes-Oxley and other whistleblower cases against the government and publicly held U.S. corporations. The firm's attorneys have a collective 70 plus years of experience litigating on behalf of individuals against employers who disregard government wage and employment laws.
The TELG law firm is serious about protecting your rights

We take employment law seriously.
Why would I want to hire a whistleblower lawyer?
The media has often alerted us to the illegality and wrongdoing in certain sectors of corporate America. These media stories highlight the importance of a few brave individuals within organizations who stand up to corporate abuse and wrongdoing. Known as whistleblowers, these brave individuals take great risks to protect others, indeed to protect us all.
Fortunately, the government has taken notice of the risks associated with blowing the whistle, and Congress and many states have taken steps to strengthen the laws protecting these brave individuals. There is now a myriad of laws protecting employees and outlawing retaliatory terminations, harassment, and other unfair employment practices. Many of these laws also provide monetary rewards for whistleblowers when the government is able to recover ill-gotten gains from employers.
While it's a fact that whistleblowers now have significant protections under state and federal laws, speaking out is not without significant risks and that's why executives, managers, and employees at all levels come to us, the TELG law firm. We understand the fears and concerns that plague whistleblowers. Our nationally recognized and experienced whistleblower lawyers help these brave individuals navigate the complex procedures required to properly bring a whistleblower claim.
