A “whistleblower” is an employee who reports a violation of the law by his or her employer. The violation may be against the reporting employee, whether for reporting sexual harassment or fraudulent accounting practices. It is illegal for an employer to fire a “whistleblower” and federal and California laws exist to protect the whistleblower. An employee may also be able to file a complaint with OSHA for workplace safety issues.
