Seattle Whistleblowing Defense Attorney
When a company or organization grows so large and powerful that corruption goes unnoticed, it’s important to have a system of checks and balances in place. This is what whistleblowing is for. A whistleblower is someone who brings discrimination, harassment, and other unlawful business practices to light in order to prevent further harm and hold corrupt entities accountable.
However, false whistleblowing claims do occur, and the long-term success of your business depends on your ability to prevent these false claims. Part of that prevention, of course, is conducting your business operations as ethically as possible. At NWBizLaw, we have the tools and resources needed to help you prevent whistleblowing, handle false claims, and protect your reputation for years to come.
Building Your Defense Against a Claim
If you have been falsely accused by a whistleblower, your reputation is not a complete loss. In fact, many whistleblowing cases are settled quietly and out of court, once the emotions, needs, and boundaries have been aired.
In the time between the initial accusation and the case settlement, it is imperative that you avoid direct interactions with the whistleblower, and you should take care not to do anything that could be considered retaliation. Otherwise, you’ll end up facing double the corporate lawsuits.
