Whistleblowers help ensure that employers provide safe, honest and legally compliant workplaces. They are integral to exposing violations and righting wrongs. In many cases, unfortunately, whistleblowers face significant antagonism from management, employers and coworkers. The law prohibits retaliatory actions against public and private employees who blew the whistle on certain wrongful conduct.
