Whistleblowing Act
« on: November 23, 2013, 09:59:16 PM »
What acts are protected by whistleblowing laws? Can I be fired from work for reporting the illegal activities of my boss? What are the penalties given to an employer who violates this law?

If you think you are affected by this act, or you've been discriminated and retaliated against in violation of any of the statutes you may file a complaint with OSHA. There are generally no reporting requirements for employers under most of the Whistleblower Protection provisions administered and enforced by OSHA. After that, the OSHA will investigate if your complaints are valid or not.
