Per the OP, he was only off a week (total of $1,500).
Oh. I missed that.

A 7-day unpaid vacation then. :)

I agree with Towerdawg that there appears to be some "unfairness" in the employer's actions. Unfair does not equal illegal, though, and I have not (as of yet) found anything illegal.

I do not see that you have any legal action to pursue against your employer.

I understand what you are saying about all of the other employees being reassigned - and I understand why it might seem to you that there must be some legal recourse - but offhand I don't see that there is.

I'll look into this more thoroughly later but I am afraid you are stuck with a 45 day unpaid "vacation."
You haven't read my post very well. Nobody got 45 days off. It was a site that would take 3 days tops. Nobody lost work but me. Anyway, I spoke to an attorney, and I do have a case

I DID read your post incorrectly at first. Sorry. I already admitted my error.

I am happy you found an attorney who believes you have a legal action to pursue - although I recommend you consult with other attorneys as well, to see if they agree.

And I would weigh very carefully the costs (attorney costs, employment costs) versus any benefits you might realize.

Good luck.

It would not appear that what you did would be considered "whistleblowing"

I am checking out more attorneys. And I have already lost this job as a result of all of this, so... hey, thanks for the input. People telling me that I may not have a case made me dig deeper. I do have a case, and I shall come back to this thread with the outcome at a later date. Thanks again all

You did not prevent a felony.

What did the attorney say your legal action would center on?

I am sorry you lost your job.

First, I want to thank you for protecting Michigan's state bird.
I swatted a few of those the last time I was there... wait it's not the mosquito?

Am I in trouble because the one above my chamber door won't leave?
Yes, next the EPA comes a tapping, tapping at your chamber door.
A federal crime you see, fines and jail, forever more.

This is an older thread from June. It was "bumped" to get spam off the main board.
