Sharon Stone's former nanny sues her for harassment

Oftentimes in the Greenbelt, Maryland, area people who work for small employers are confused about their employment rights.

Additionally, small employers typically do not have human resources departments that help them stay up-to-date with employment law concerns.

Baltimore court awards man $462,500 for blowing whistle on pollution

It is sad but true that not all employers act in the best interests of their customers, employees or even the environment. It takes courage for an employee to "blow the whistle" on any illegal activity that their employer participates in, because not all employers are receptive to their bad behavior being reported to a federal agency. In fact, many whistleblowers are wrongfully terminated for their good conscience, which is why the law protects those who take the high road.
