When someone is deemed a “whistleblower,” they can be glorified or they can be vilified. Whistleblower protection laws are in place to protect employees who seek to expose the wrongdoings of the company they work for but often times an employer or supervisor will retaliate resulting in the loss of wages or wrongful termination. Whistleblowing can include:
- Refusing to participate in unlawful activities
- Written notice of intent to disclose unlawful activities
- Reporting of unsafe or illegal activity to authorities
- Cooperating with authorities investigating wrongdoing
- Reporting Fraud
