Whistleblower Laws protect employees from retaliatory conduct in the workplace as the result of engaging in legally protected activity, including but not limited to the following:
• Reporting Unsafe Working Conditions
• Reporting Fraudulent Conduct or Activities
• Reporting Illegal Conduct Pertaining to the Business
• Participating in an Investigation or Judicial Action Against Your Employer
Those who do partake in investigative or judicial proceedings, or report activity that sparks such, are protected against harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination as a result. Should an employer participate in any of these actions or encourage other employees to do so, the employer will be held civilly liable for such actions.

• Cutting Hours
• Reducing Pay
• Unwarranted Demotion
• Cutting or Terminating Employee Benefits
• Termination (Either Outright Termination or Forcing an Employee to Quit)
