Protecting Whistleblowers From Retaliation Such As Job Loss Or Demotions
Various federal and state laws have spelled out legal protection for whistleblowers – that is, for people who, in good faith, report wrongdoing by government or private companies or individuals. Examples of such laws include:
- The Federal False Claims Act (regarding the reporting of illegal actions within federal agencies)
- Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (regarding the reporting of SEC violations within private companies)
- From the Florida statutes, Sections 112.3187-112.31895, known as the “Whistleblower’s Act” (regarding reporting of illegal activities, within agencies or by independent contractors that pose danger to the public)
Whistleblower protection laws provide for payments to whistleblowers, job protection and/or protection from retaliation for disclosing illegal activities to authorities.
