Get Every Dollar You are Owed in Your Whistleblower Retaliation Case

Proving damages is an important, but often overlooked, part of whistleblower retaliation claims. You and your whistleblower lawyer  should always keep an eye on the prize – the goal is is to get every dollar you are owed and to make you whole.

Most courts follow the “make whole” rule in whistleblower retaliation and discrimination cases. Under this standard, a whistleblower wrongfully retaliated against should receive an award “equal to the injury … the injured party is to be placed, as near as may be, in the situation he would have occupied if the wrong had not been committed.”
