Whistleblowing

Our community relies on workers that “blow the whistle” on illegal conduct.

Blowing the whistle includes:

  1. Reporting to lawful authorities (police, government officials) illegal conduct;
  2. Reporting to lawful authorities what you reasonably believe is illegal conduct;
  3. Reporting to higher authorities within the organization (human resources, higher management) illegal conduct;
  4. Reporting to higher authorities within the organization what you reasonably believe is illegal conduct;
  5. Refusing to commit or participate in illegal conduct; or
  6. Refusing to commit or participate in what you reasonably believe is illegal conduct.

You are also protected if you:

  1. Engage in conduct which is supported by clear mandate of public policy (donating a kidney to save a loved one).

If you are fired because you “blew the whistle” or engaged in conduct which is supported by clear mandate of public policy, you should immediately contact a professional.

If you are considering “blowing the whistle”, you should immediately contact a professional for guidance in order to protect your rights to ensure you “blow the whistle” in the specific ways the law protects. How you “blow the whistle” will make all the difference in protecting yourself, preserving and enforcing your rights. You should never have to “blow the whistle” without professional guidance.

Please contact us immediately for a no-charge, no-commitment consultation. Our toll-free number is 1-800-578-HELP (4357).
