Whistleblower Representation

Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliatory firing if they report the employer’s allegedly illegal activities to the appropriate state or federal agency.

In one notable case, Silver Golub & Teitell LLP represented a corporate whistleblower in his claim under the Federal False Claims Act against United Technologies that resulted in the largest award at the time recovered by the U.S. government under the Act, a settlement of $150 million.  In another case, as lead counsel in what is believed to be the largest class action in Connecticut history, we successfully represented 40,000 current and former employees in their action against the Xerox Corporation for violations of ERISA pension laws.
