Fire chief says city broke whistleblower laws by firing him

In Florida, whistleblower statues exist to protect public employees who speak up about possible public safety issues or improper conduct of government officials from being fired. Certainly anyone could see why it would be unfair and even dangerous to fire an employee who is simply looking out for the best interests of his or her city. Unfortunately, some public officials would rather keep a whistleblower quiet than address them in an appropriate manner.

Local Florida whistle-blowers must blow whistle at local boss

Workers in Florida who report the illegal conduct or fraud of their employers are generally protected from being fired for doing so under federal or state employment laws. Such workers are called whistle-blowers, and whistle-blowers tend to be protected from experiencing retaliation for blowing the whistle. This does still happen, but when workers are fired for blowing a whistle they may seek job reinstatement and financial compensation.
