Can you be fired for reporting your employer's actions?

"Whistleblowing" is a term used when an employee reports an illegal action or business practice on their employer's part. When we see something in the workplace that puts people at risk or is an unfair action, such as an act of discrimination, we probably do not want these things to happen again. Many people refrain from whistleblowing though, because they fear for the future of their careers. Can your employer fire you if you blow the whistle on their actions?

What business owners should know about eminent domain

When most people hear the term commercial litigation, their thoughts immediately turn to complex court cases concerning everything from contract disputes and shareholder disagreements to valuation issues and even antitrust violations.

If you own a small business or run an HR department, you've probably encountered this issue. An employee -- let's call him Gary -- takes leave to have surgery and post-operative physical therapy. As you probably know, the federal Family and Medical Leave Act guarantees qualified employees like Gary the right to take a certain amount of time off for this purpose without losing his job.
