Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers play an integral role in the workplace. Whistleblowers are people that see illegal activities within their workplace and -- when their bosses refuse to do anything or look the other way -- report these violations to a government agency. Without these brave people, many serious violations of the law by individuals and employers would never come to light. Consequently, whistleblowers generally cannot be fired or disciplined for reporting the wrongdoing. FindLaw's section on whistleblowers covers information on what protections and rights the law offers to whistleblowers in a variety of circumstances.
