What Is The Whistleblower Act?

- This is designed to protect Employees who have spoken out against unlawful Acts in the Workplace
- It is also designed to stop retaliation against the individuals who have spoken out
- The Employee has to speak out about an unlawful practice, or a clear mandate of quality and health, in order to qualify as a Whistleblower
- They should also prove that they suffered an adverse job action, such as a demotion, termination, transfer, or a bad assignment
- The Employee must show that there is a cause of link between these actions
- Reporting an internal policy violation is not enough to qualify you as a Whistleblower
