Jason Gunter settled a Public Sector Whistleblower case against the Lee County Government on behalf of his 7 clients. The settlement was approved by the Lee County Board of County Commissioners on March 5, 2013 as Lee County agreed to settle the Florida Public Sector Whistleblower case for nearly $500,000 damages in favor of Mr. Gunter’s clients. Mr. Gunter represented 7 clients who were wrongfully terminated in retaliation for participating in a government investigation regarding Lee County employees performing non-county work on county time. Mr. Gunter was pleased with the result on behalf of his clients, who, as he stated, “never should have lost their jobs to begin with.”
