Whistleblower protection: Know your rights, types of retaliation

Like most, there is a good chance you don't have much knowledge of whistleblower protection and the most common types of employer retaliation. If you find yourself searching for more information, you don't want to stop until you know exactly what you are doing and how your situation will be treated.

There are many federal and state laws concerning whistleblower protection and retaliation. However, this doesn't mean that every company and employee of those companies will obey the law.

Here are some of the most common types of whistleblower retaliation:

-- Termination as a result of speaking up regarding a problem in the workplace.

-- An employee who is demoted or disciplined.

-- Poor treatment by coworkers, typically those who did not agree with the decision to blow the whistle.

Since there is a lot of gray area regarding whistleblower retaliation, it can be difficult to know your rights and determine which steps you should and should not be taking. Here are some of the questions you can answer to better understand your situation:

-- Are you a federal or state employee?

-- Have you documented the ways in which you have been retaliated against?

-- Have other workers made the same complaints as you?

It is good to know that there are whistleblower protection laws in place. Unfortunately, these are not always simple to understand. If you want to learn more about these laws, as well as common types of retaliation, our website has what you are looking for.
