TheScientist Magazine Features Story on $819,000 Whistleblower Retaliation Verdict in Favor of TELG Client Dr. Weihua Huang
Last week, The Scientist, a magazine for life science researchers and academics, featured an article highlighting a recent $819,000 whistleblower retaliation jury verdict for Dr. Weihua Huang, a former University of Virginia (UVA) researcher and client of The Employment Law Group® law firm. Dr. Huang alleged that UVA administrators retaliated against him for reporting that his supervisor had altered and misused a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grant budget.
The Scientist article quoted Dr. Huang’s attorney, Adam Augustine Carter, principal of The Employment Law Group® law firm, who commented that “this decision is important to the entire [research] grant community because, on these grants, levels of efforts are assigned and the principal investigator is responsible for the use of the money.”
The article, entitled “Court Awards Whistleblower $820,000: A jury finds that UVA wrongfully fired a researcher for reporting that his supervisor altered an NIH grant budget”, was originally published on October 19, 2012.
