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.

Friedlander began working for Edwards Lifesciences in 2011. In his lawsuit, Friedlander claims that in 2015 his employer hatched an unlawful...
