Blowing the whistle includes:
- Reporting to lawful authorities (police, government officials) illegal conduct;

- Refusing to commit or participate in what you reasonably believe is illegal conduct.
You are also protected if you:
- Engage in conduct which is supported by clear mandate of public policy (donating a kidney to save a loved one).

This helps clients enforce their rights while giving clients peace of mind. Those who are discriminated against should not have to worry about paying an attorney up front for the legal fees.
