Whistleblowers Laws

The Whistleblowers Laws

There are more than twenty laws that protect employees who blow the whistle and report violations of workplace and public safety laws.  These laws make it illegal for a company to take an adverse action against an employee who makes a protected disclosure about workplace or public safety.   This means that employers cannot retaliate against a whistleblower by firing, blacklisting, demoting, denying overtime, denying promotion, denying benefits, or disciplining, intimidating or threatening them.  

 The laws cover many workplace safety concerns, including:   

  • Asbestos
  • Cargo Containers
  • Trucking
  • Drinking Water
  • Clean Water 
  • Toxic Substances & Chemicals
  • Solid Waste
  • Clean Air
  • Hazardous Waste & Pollutants
  • Nuclear Energy & Waste
  • Airlines & Aviation Safety
  • SOX –Publically Traded Companies; Fraud; SEC
  • Pipelines
  • Railroads
  • Public Transportation
  • Consumer Products
  • Affordable Care Act
  • Maritime Safety 
  • Consumer Financial Products or Services
  • Food Manufacturers
  • Motor Vehicle Safety
  • Violence in the Workplace
