Joyner v. Georgia-Pacific Gypsum

DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

After finding that Georgia-Pacific terminated Joyner for disclosing what he believed to be falsification of records and a failure to adhere to a previous administrative order, the ARB ordered that Joyner be reinstated and paid back-wages.

What Happened in Court

Joyner was a long time Georgia-Pacific employee and held numerous positions with the company.  After being transferred to a plant in Savannah, Joyner came to believe that the plant was not in compliance with an order from the State Environmental Protection Division.  Soon after he disclosed these concerns to his manager, the company threatened to put him on a Performance Improvement Plan.  Joyner later contacted the State Inspector to report his concerns.  Within three days, the company terminated his employment.  The ARB found that the termination violated the SWDA’s whistleblower protection provisions and ordered reinstatement and backpay.
