Whistleblower Protections

Protecting those who speak up

Whistleblowers – that is, a person who reports illegal conduct by an individual, organization or business to law enforcement, regulators, or the media – are essential to combatting illicit or illegal activity. However, whistleblowers who work inside a company or organization can be especially vulnerable to threats and intimidation by their employer. Because of this, whistleblowers are given legal protections, enabling them to report illegal activities without being threatened with job loss or legal action, for example.

If you find yourself in a situation where you become aware of illegal activity on the part of your employer and are concerned about the repercussions of reporting the activity, or if you have already reported illegal activity and have been terminated by your employer, you should seek legal counsel immediately.
