Whistleblower Attorneys of Newton Barth Protect Those Who Speak Up
Whistleblowers are essential to combating 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.
What is a Whistleblower?
A whisleblower is a person who reports illegal or damaging conduct by an individual, organization or business to law enforcement, regulators, or the media. This activity can include fraud, abuse, corruption, waste or dangers to public health and safety. A whistleblower typically works within the organization where the wrongdoing is occurring, though this not essential. What does matter is that the individual discloses otherwise unknown information about the offenses, bringing them to light and setting a course for change.
