Protection for Whistleblowers
Whistleblowers are individuals who have stepped up to report illegal activity by their employer, for example environmental violations or illegal workplace safety practices. Not surprisingly, such reporting can be met with resistance by some employers, or worse, retaliation. Laws have 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.
