When an employer is suspected of engaging in illegal actions and benefiting from these actions, an employee may take it upon him or herself to report this to the proper authorities. When this happens, the individual who did the reporting is called a whistleblower.
Whistleblowers are often courageous people, but feel alone in the workplace. They are seeing wrong committed on a regular basis at their companies but understand that if they report and stand up for what is right, they are risking their jobs. It is important for whistleblowers to know that they are not alone. An experienced lawyer can be on their side.
