I was a health care worker. I witnessed abuse and neglect of the disabled people we were caring for. I attempted to change this during staff meetings. As a result, I experienced workplace harassment and retaliation. So I reported the workplace retaliation as well as the abuse. As a result of this my employment was terminated.
It is a somewhat complex tale. Anyway, I complained to the BUREAU OF LABOR STANDARDS. Wisconsin has a WHISTLEBLOWER LAW to protect health care workers.
Now the company wants to settle. They are sending an administrative law judge up from Milwuakee to mediate a settlement on April 21. As far as I am concerned, I would just as soon let the freakin investigation go foreward. However, if they make me a really good monetary offer, I might just settle and drop my complaint.
What I want to know is, what can i expect in this mediation? Also, what type of offer can I expect as a settlement? I really dont know anything about the law. Thanks.
