Protecting Your Employee Rights

If you have a legal problem with your employer, you deserve to have someone who will stand up for your rights. At John J. Hopkins & Associates, we can assist you with employment law matters that include:

Did your employer retaliate against you for reporting fraud?
The federal False Claims Act was passed in 2002 to encourage workers to report known cases of fraud if they discover their employer is cheating on a federal contract. States have also enacted whistleblower laws regarding fraudulent claims against state and municipal contracts. If you have faced threats or been terminated because of whistleblowing, you may be entitled to compensation, as well as reinstatement with back pay you are owed. If you wish to report employer fraud but are afraid to do so, call us for assistance. There are very specific rules that you must follow in order to be eligible to receive a percentage of the money.

The first step toward getting the recourse you deserve is to talk with a lawyer about your situation. You need a law firm that has the resources necessary to stand up for you against an employer of any size in Illinois.
