Idaho law protects employees who report violations of state and federal law from retaliation by employers. Such reports can include reports to the employer as well as to outside agencies. Those who report illegal wrongdoings within their organizations are often referred to as whistleblowers. These people may receive backlash from their employers, which is referred to as workplace retaliation—and that behavior goes against many state and federal laws. If you have been treated unfairly or discriminated against after reporting an incident in the workplace, the whistleblower lawyers at Rossman Law Group are here to give you our expert help.
Idaho law also protects employees who exercise important civil rights such as attendance at a legal proceeding pursuant to a subpoena, serving jury duty, and similar activities.
Public employees are also protected by the Idaho Public Employees Protect Act. Under this Act, a public employee is protected from retaliation for reporting in good faith a waste of public funds or manpower, or reporting a violation of law, rule or regulation. Public employees are also protected from retaliation for participating in an investigation or refusing to perform an act which the employee reasonably believes would result in a violation of law, rule, or regulation. If you are a public employee who may have such a claim, you should promptly contact our whistleblower lawyers in Boise, Idaho; such claims must be filed within 180 days of the retaliation.
