There is protection for whistle-blowers when their employers decide to take retaliatory action.

A whistle-blower who warned of problems with safety equipment planned for Florida nuclear plants has been awarded $100,000 for his wrongful firing.

Unjustly fired worker awarded back pay

David L. Robinson, a Texas engineer who was a specialist in quality controls at nuclear plants, had been fired by Triconex, a California-based subsidiary of the British firm Invensys.

Robinson was dismissed last September after complaining of shoddy work practices involving equipment intended for the Turkey Point and St. Lucie County nuclear plants in Florida and at a nuclear project in the Nebraska Public Power District.
