Quirky Question #257, Food for thought – whistleblowing claims against agricultural companies
My company manufactures food products and is thus regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Last month, we terminated an employee because of his chronic poor performance. I just learned that the day before he was terminated, the employee told his supervisor that he believed our company was not complying with the FDA’s nutrition label requirements. Are we at risk that he will bring a whistleblower claim?
