Whistleblowers are vitally important, as they exercise integrity to make sure that wrongdoings are discovered, addressed and rectified. That being said, fewer and fewer people are stepping up to the plate to report their employers for environmental violations and other unsafe practices for fear of retaliation. At Rasansky Law Firm, our job is to protect you from any sort of retaliation, while also helping you collect the cash reward to which you’re entitled.
The US has a variety of laws aimed at protecting our water, air, and soil (and citizens) from environmental harm. Companies who manufacture, produce, or dispose of hazardous substances are held accountable for properly managing and disposing of these toxins and pollutants by the EPA. Should they fail in this regard (e.g. illegal dumping, misrepresenting emission levels, chemical leaks, etc.), they can—and should—be held legally responsible.
Employees who report violations of these laws protect the public and the environment from serious risks, while performing a vital service to the community at large. By bringing a Qui Tam claim, you can help the government identify environmental violations, force the company to address the issue, and collect a monetary award.
By hiring an attorney, you can retain anonymity throughout the process and give yourself the best chance successfully recovering a cash award.
Our environment contains a fragile ecosystem which can be easily disrupted, causing harm to both plants and animals. It doesn’t help that many companies put profit above all else, risking public health in pursuit of the almighty dollar. However, the country has (over the last 30-odd years) enacted whistleblower protection laws in order to encourage employees to report environmental violations to the EPA without fear of retaliation.
