What Does a Whistleblower Do?
Simply put, whistleblowers expose wrongdoing of an individual, employer, organization, or corporation in the public or private sector. Whistleblowing exposes almost any illegal act(s) committed by an individual, organization, or employer, usually associated specifically with an employer’s gross waste, fraud or other illegal acts. This could mean reporting false accounting (also called “cooking the books”) or other illegal schemes an employer has committed in an attempt to increase their profits and curb debts in an underhanded, sneaky way. Whistleblowers are protected by U.S. law, but it’s still a wise idea to hire a whistleblower attorney who can protect your rights and best interests throughout the legal process.
