Halunen Law, Nichols Kaster, and Apollo Law Win Landmark decision on Behalf of Employee in Minnesota Whistleblower Case

2017-08-11

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN, August 11, 2017 — A unanimous decision by the Minnesota Supreme Court on August 9th did away with 15 years of case law and significantly expands protections for employees who report illegal conduct. In Friedlander v. Edwards Lifesciences, LLC, et al., the Minnesota Supreme Court decision held that a 2013 amendment to the Minnesota Whistleblower Act changed the definition of “good faith” to eliminate consideration of employees’ motivations in making reports. Since the amendment, what constitutes “good faith” requires only that the employee’s report is neither reckless nor knowingly false. This is a major victory for employees and the rule of law in Minnesota according to Halunen Law, Nichols Kaster, and Apollo Law–the three law firms representing the plaintiff, James Friedlander. Friedlander began working for Edwards Lifesciences in 2011. In his lawsuit, Friedlander claims that in 2015 his employer hatched an unlawful...
