A whistleblower is a person who witnesses or is informed of wrongdoing at their place of employment and then tells either their employer or a government entity about the unlawful activity or refuses to engage in the unlawful activity. A whistleblower is also a person who provides testimony or information against their employer during a government investigation or hearing.
It takes courage to be a whistleblower. As a result, both New Jersey and Pennsylvania have laws to protect whistleblowers.
Whistleblowers are often bullied or harassed at work, or even terminated. If you believe your employment has been adversely affected because you blew the whistle, we can help.
