What Is The Whistleblower Act

The whistleblower act is a federal law that allows people and employees to report law breakers without fear of prosecution or losing their job. An employee who knows that a company or person within the company is doing something illegal and dangerous has the ability to use the whistleblower act to report the infractions to the police or government without fear of repercussions. The whistleblower act was put into place after people had been fired for reporting illegal acts being done by companies and some people were given threats due to the actions. The whistleblower act allows a person to not fear repercussions for reporting anything illegal within their place of business.
