A whistleblower is someone who reports illegal activities within an organization. Reporting wrongdoing can put employees at risk of creating a negative relationship with their employers, resulting in a hostile work environment or even termination.
However, whistleblowers are protected from retaliation by law. For federal employees, the Whistleblower Protection Act provides provisions to protect those reporting wrongdoing. Many other laws include whistleblower provisions, including laws governed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
