What are the Rights for Whistleblowers?

Such employees may not be fired, mistreated, or otherwise retaliated against for “whistle blowing,” as long as the employee has a reasonable basis for his or her belief that the activity was illegal, even if the employer did not actually violate the law.

Are There Exceptions to Whistleblower Rights?

Employees must report the illegal activity of their employers to authorities outside the company. If the employee complains internally within the company, the employee is not protected by the whistleblower laws. However, he or she may be protected by retaliation laws, if the employee is complaining of discrimination or sexual harassment.

Furthermore, in response to recent corporate scandals, Congress has enacted the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which provides broad protections for employees of public companies who “whistle blow” or complain about fraud by their employers.
