Court allows securities strategist's retaliatory discharge case

When a mortgage-backed securities strategist at the global financial services UBS AG was told to publish what he thought were misleading research reports, he complained to his managers.

Mine worker fired in retaliation for hazard report wins $115,000

In April 2012, an electrician who worked at a Colorado coal mine noticed a dangerous situation at the mine's conveyer belt, or beltline. When he decided it wasn't being adequately addressed by his supervisor, he filed a report with the Mine Safety and Health Administration, which responded by inspecting the mine works and citing the company, New Elk Coal Company LLC, owned by Cline Mining Corporation, with several safety citations. In May, the electrician was fired.

CIO exposes illegal snooping program, gets fired in retaliation

Court: failure to reinstate after leave is wrongful termination

A federal judge has ordered DS Waters of America Inc., operating as Sparkletts, a bottled water company familiar to most Californians, to reinstate one if its delivery drivers and compensate him for back pay and undue medical expenses after it failed to reinstate him after he took approved leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. The unusual aspect of this case is that the company he worked for when he took the leave was bought by another company by the time he was ready to return. Nevertheless, the Department of Labor says the failure to reinstate the man constitutes wrongful termination under federal law.
