What is the name of your state? Virginia
I am employed by a frachised affiliate of a national franchise motel company. The franchise contract between my employer and the national company requires full and truthful reporting of monthly revenue totals to the national office. I am responsible for providing the correct numbers to my employer and I see the downwardly fabricated numbers that he then passes to the franchise parent (meaning he pays lower franchise fees than the terms of his agreement calls for). Since taking my job I have been told on several occasions that the person I replaced had once threathened to 'blow the whistle' on the violation of the franchise contract and my boss in turn threathened her with a lawsuit for revealing company information. Okay, some of my coworkers are now being subjected to unfair and unusual conditions of employement (see my prior post) If I were to try to leverage my knowledge of the violation of the franchise contract to try to correct some of that misconduct, is there validity to my employer's claim that he can take action against me for informing our franchise parent of his violation of his revenue reporting agreement with them. Let me stress that the 'company information' I would reveal is limited to the accurate sets of figures he is required to provide them?
