I was hired as a loan processor to prepare loans that would require me to use counterfited documents, false signatures and attest that documents were true copies of the originals when they weren't. When i refused to do so, they assigned to me another task and later fired me. This happened back in 2005.
Is it too late for me to take legal action?
Employment / Labor Attorney
Under Florida Whistleblower Law you have 2 years to file a lawsuit based upon retaliatory job action due to complaints of illegal activity or refusal to partake in illegal activity. However, there may be other actions available which have longer statutes of limitation depending on facts you have not revealed. For example, under some whistleblower statutes, the deadline can be as much as six years. Please seek a consult with an employment attorney familiar with whistleblower law. You can find one at www.nela.org.
