Whistleblower Defense

A whistleblower is a person working within a business who reports misconduct. The individual may be a current or past employee. There are two types of whistleblower: internal and external. An internal whistleblower reports the alleged misconduct to another employee or a superior. An external whistleblower reports the alleged violation to an outside source such as a lawyer or law enforcement. The alleged misconduct may be ongoing or may have occurred in the past. In most cases, the alleged misconduct reported by the whistleblower violates a law and threatens the public in one way or another.
