Protection for Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers are individuals who have stepped up to report illegal activity or violations of the public trust by their employer, such as environmental violations or illegal workplace safety practices. Not surprisingly, such reporting can be met with resistance -- or worse, retaliation -- by some employers. Laws have been developed to protect whistleblowers from retaliation and to encourage future whistleblowers to speak out when they notice illegal activity. This section contains information and resources on whistleblower laws, what to do if you've been retaliated against for whistleblowing, and more. Educating yourself is an important step if you are considering “blowing the whistle” on your employer.
