Wrongful termination public policy, Whistleblowers your blog is here.

I came across a first class blog put together by The Employment Law Group. The Employment Law Group® law firm represents whistle blowers nationwide in qui tam and retaliation claims under the False Claims Act and various whistleblower protection laws, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and litigates discrimination, harassment, and civil rights actions on behalf of both private sector and public sector employees. The firm’s seasoned trial attorneys have earned an enviable record of favorable settlements and verdicts on behalf of its clients. The left side has a drop down of the newest articles and they are changed daily.

As reader of this site know, by the mast head of the site, wrongful termination includes any termination in most states that violates some public policy. Of course everyone is aware of racial discrimination, sexual discrimination ,and discrimination based on age are violations of public policy. But there are many more, and this site guides you through a fairly good chunk of them including:
■AIR21
■Contractor Fraud
■D.C. False Claims Act
■D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act
■Department of Defense
■Discovery
■False Claims Act
■Federal Rail Safety Act
■Federal Whistleblower Legislation
■Fees
■Financial Institutions Reform
■FIRREA
■FOIA
■Nuclear Regulatory Commission
■OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program
■Public Employee Whistleblower Protection
■Reporting Tax Fraud
■Retaliation
■Safe Drinking Water Act
■Sarbanes-Oxley
■State Whistleblower Legislation
■Surface Transportation Assistance Act
■Uncategorized
■Whistleblower Protection Act

If you feel or know anyone who was terminated under any kind of public policy refer them quickly to this site. The pieces are written by lawyers that represent employees exclusively, and the site does post administrative decision by various federal administrative agency Administrative Law Judges that can be difficult to find else where. Here is an example: Administrative Law Judge Daniel Leland awarded Cynthia Ferguson over $151,000 including $75,000 in punitive damages, holding that she was terminated in retaliation for refusing to drive in hazardous conditions. On a cross country trip...

And the author links the decision in PDF here:

This is very good tool to keep abreast on various Public Policy terminations,how the courts and agency's are responding.
