We had a whistleblower case recently that had a particularly good result. It involved a distributor of motorcycle parts. We represented the vice president of the company, who noticed that the company’s president was bringing merchandise in but not recording that it had been received.
The president altered the records to show only that some of the merchandise was received, but not all of it. Then he was selling some of the merchandise out of the back warehouse and keeping all of the money for himself and some other co-conspirators.
Our client first confronted the president. The president denied the accusation and immediately recommended to the board of directors that the whistleblower be fired. The board fired our client, and we brought a lawsuit for whistleblowing.
We were very successful in getting our client a significant settlement. Afterwards, the board investigated his claims and the president and his co-conspirators were fired.
