Whistleblower Lawyer, Maurice Arcadier was interviewed by Larry King, in CNNs Larry King Live. It was one of Mr. King’s last interview. Board Certified attorney, Maurice Arcadier, Esq. represented a Whistleblower in the case that received national and worldwide attention. The case has been resolved.
The case was a Florida Case and cited Florida’s Private Whistleblower laws as codified by Florida Statute 448.102. The Florida Private Whistleblower laws protect an employee from being discriminated or retaliated as a result of engaging in protected activity. An experienced whistleblower lawyer is the best person that can help you identify whether in fact, you have a Whistleblower case that can be legally pursued.
Under Florida Whistleblower Law, there are three ways for an employee to enter into protected activity.
- To refuse to personally participate in an illegal activity which violates a law, rule, or regulation.
- To participate in a formal government investigation by testifying, or otherwise assisting in the investigation.
- To report an act of another employee that violates a law, rule, or regulation. However, in order to be covered under the Florida Whistleblower Statute, the employee must have reported the act first in writing to the appropriate employer representative, and said writing must be under oath.
